I would disable it first and then go ahead with the installation of Windows after that because if you're installing Windows 7, then it'll be ok with the GTX 275. It would even be ok with a Fermi card, except your resolution would be really low because Windows 7 doesn't come with Fermi drivers.

Of course, be sure to install the latest driver/software package from NVIDIA. That way you get the control panel and PhysX.

So in other words, don't let Windows know that you have onboard video.

so go into bios and turn it of before i proceed with anything else. also running vista 64 retail. so to recap what you are saying, install m/b power up turn off on board gpu, save. install windows. power down intall dedicated gpu, power back up install drivers and update and all should be good cheers.

you see, I was under the assumption that when you plugged a dedicated gpu into the motherboard and connected your monitor to the gpu, the onboad was automatically disabled because it was not in use. At least that is what I was told and thats what worked for me when I built my sig rig.

Actually, I mean this:
  1. Before putting the graphics card in, power system on
  2. Enter the BIOS and disable the onboard video
  3. Save and shut down
  4. Turn the power supply off for safety
  5. Put the graphics card in the slot
  6. Turn the system back on
  7. Do what you want to do with the BIOS (everyone has their own thing that they like to do)
  8. Install Windows
  9. At some point after installing Windows (whenever you want, basically), install the latest official driver/software package from NVIDIA: http://us.download.nvidia.com/Window...glish_whql.exe

If you disable the onboard video and then try to install Windows before putting the graphics card into the PCI-E slot, then you would be installing Windows blindly because you wouldn't be able to see anything. So disable the onboard video first; that is, disable it before you do anything at all. But the graphics card must be physically installed before beginning the Windows installation so that you can see what you're doing.

You're welcome. As long as you disable the onboard video before doing anything else, then it'll be just like your board didn't even come with it.
