video card installation question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My 580 gtx is supposed to arrive today but with ups you can never tell. Anyways i have the p8z68 v pro from asus with onboard graphics, I have my bios set to check pci express before going to use onboard. Is it ok if I leave it this way or do I have to uninstall the onboard drivers ?

Uninstall and driversweep the onboard drivers, disable the onboard chipset itself in the bios.

It should enable itself if no other display device is detected.

Edit - If not, simply reset your BIOS/CMOS and the integrated card should be re-enabled.

You don't want your OS to recognize the integrated card, the only way to do that is to disable it, plus, leaving drivers installed with it will conflict with the new card.

I've seen some motherboards override a disabled display device when none were detected.

If it ever comes to that and it happens that your mobo doesn't, simply reset the bios/cmos and it will be at default settings with the integrated card enabled.

Disable the integrated card in the bios setting, then plug in your new GTX 580. I had to do this on one of my Gigabyte AM3 boards w/onboard graphics a while back when I first got a HD 5850.

I don't see why you would need to disable the igpu. The point of Z68 was so that you can use both dedicated, and integrated, and have overclocking support.
