hello all
ive finally decided to buy a graphics card to replace the on board chip that came with my pc but i was wondering if i get say, a new nvidia card will it automatically override the nvidia onboard chip or do i have to fiddle withe the bios?
im running:
amd athlon xp 2600+ (2.13ghz)
2gb DDR ram
Asus A7N8X-LA motherboard

any help would be great.... :)
also im happy to spend around 300$ (australian) on a new graphics card if anyone wants to suggest a particular model!

thanks,
pete Mcpete
