    A friend of mine has an integrated graphics set up on his PC. He wants to throw a video card in so he will have duel monitor support. Are these the proper steps.

    1. Insert Card
    2. Turn on Machine and change BIOS settings(turn off integrated graphics)
    3. Restart computer, load drivers etc?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Just tried that the other day. MOST motherboards will auto disable onboard when you put an add in card into the machine.

    I ended up using a video card that had a DVI AND VGA input on them to accomplish the same thing.
