1.Read the MBD manual to disable it.
2.Call Dell is Hell support.1-800-***-****
3.Are you unhappy with intel extreme graphics
4.Does your mbd have an AGP slot,if so buy a ATI AGP,if you want the best for your monitor.

Yeah, as Bluto said; just disable the Card - I don't know how to do that but that is what the helpline is there for - then you just install the AGP Card, which I'm sure a 2400 would have space for, but check anyway as it says in the install booklet which would come with the card. I would however recommend nVidia.
