Hello AMD. First, I would try to make sure the new video card will work before trying to disable anything. It should automatically disable onboard graphics. If not, try this:

Older motherboards have a small switch or jumper that you have to set to disable onboard graphics. Most likely, it's in the system BIOS where you can disable it there. You can go into Device Manager and delete the INtegrated graphics component because you don't need that.

At least get a geforce 6600GT and you're set to play every single game in the world.
