Here's a tough one for you all...
I have a Dell Inspiron 620 with an after market Antec 650W power supply and the computer works fine. I bought a GIGABYTE AMD Radeon HD6670 PCI-E 2.1 card and I have went into my BIOS and I believe there's something wrong with it because in the in my Bios is have
>Basic
>Advanced
>Boot
>Security
>Exit
I go to advanced and all I see is
> CPU Configuration
> System Configuration
and two others and in neither is an option about any graphics ena/disable...
I called Dell support and they couldn't help me...Can some one PLEASE HELP!

The integrated graphics will be disabled automatically if you plug in the HD6670.

If there is any option, it should be in either the cpu or system configuration menus.
But, oem pc's often supply dumbed down BIOS with limited options.

Some bioses will disable the integrated graphics adapter automatically if it detects a discrete graphics card.
Others will allow both adapters to be active, in which case you should see an option to select which one is to be primary for bios messages.
In your device manager, look to see if you have multiple graphics adapters.

Since you are apparently working ok, you might as well ignore the problem.
Having the integrated graphics available will not have any effect.

If you can't disable the HD2000 in the bios I mean there is not option to disable it. Try this. Connect the monitor to the onborad card, also install the HD6670, turn on the pc, install the HD6670 driver from AMD website. Trun off the pc, connect the monitor to the HD6670. Trun on the PC, then you should be fine to use the new card instead of the hd2000.
You can go to device manager to comfirm that the new card is operating properly.

I found the site KitGuru review inspiron 620, when you click the image 3 of 7, you can see the option graphics configuration under advanced.

Also does the pc come with the other GPU (like the Nvidia card) before you change it into HD6670? If yes, you need uninstall that GPU driver before install the HD6670 driver.

(((((I believe this is the setting for Primary Graphics in the bios....it can be forced in most bios. If set to AUTO, which it should be by default....then like you said, it just is plug and play. But the Peripherals settings in the bios usually have a toggle for OnBoard/PCI/PCIeX
