Need to Diasable Intergrated Graphics When Installing Graphics Card?
I have two computers sitting around which I kept procrastinating installing a PCIE X 16 Video cards I have for them.
Will I need to disable the intergrated graphics device when I do?
I've seen OEM computers that show the Motherboard's graphic connecters as disabled due to a graphics card ....sometimes even the HDMI and VGA is disabled for a DVI and VGA connecter.
Other times I don't recall any mention when OEM box has dedicated Video card.
Is this necessary?
Done through the BIOS or through TaskManager and/or Display>advanced> adapter? I'm planning on doing this soon to get the BOSS CATT off my computers and back on to her own, so I need to know.

Most of the time I find the on-board GPU is auto disabled when a dedicated card is installed.....

....provided a monitor is connected to the add-on card and nothing is connected to the integrated.What computer do you have? And please don't say a white one. - Sheldon Cooper

All depends on the board! My foxconn ran both and didn't have an option to disable the on-board.

So if the Motherboard's graphics are not disabled on some Mobo, which is the "active" monitor, assumimg both onboard and videocard card have monitors connected?
Can they be toggled through Control panal>Settings>advanced> adapter or some other means. Would they work independent, spread, clone like dual-monitors?

Yes and No, it really depends on what Motherboard you have right now, some will let you do things like that, some won't, some will auto switch the video to the card, some will use the onboard as the primary, and you'd have to set it in Windows or the OS to what screen is primary. Its hard to say really.
do you have the make and model of the board, that might help a bit in case someone else with the same board might have already gone down this road?i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
