    If your PC has an AGP you can install an AGP card. On most systems this disables the on-board (shared) graphics.
    On some systems it is disabled in BIOS, and on some it simply cannot be disabled, only ignored.

    There is no problem installing a PCI TV card, it should not conflict with the graphics.
