The problem: When I install the driver for my graphics card, my PC will crash and continue to do so until i can either race through and disable the card in the device manager window, or reformat to get rid of the driver.I suspect that this has something to do with the integrated graphics clashing with the discrete one.

I've tried disabling the integrated graphics in the device manager window (under display adapters I found and disabled "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" , not sure if this is the correct one, but it was the only one) and that did not help either. Neither has trying older versions of drivers, it just takes them a bit longer to crash on me, which may or may not be pure coincidence.

As a note, I haven't found any way to disable the integrated graphics in my BIOS settings.

Graphics card: EVGA GTX 660
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G43
CPU: AMD FX-6300
OS: Windows 8

At this point I'm not sure what exactly to do, so any help would be appreciated.

FX chips don't have integrated graphics. What you're using right now are windows' basic video drivers.

You could have an unstable graphics card - can you try putting it in a friends' computer?

I'm pretty sure that the card is alright, I had it running in my old pc for about 1-2 weeks without any problems.
