However am not sure if it is compatible with my computer, which only allows for single din cards.
The second pressing issue beyond compatibility is not overloading my power supply while keeping temperatures to the lows. Right now I have jimmy rigged a commercial fan and upgraded the stock fan to maintain the temperature.
The present card is a 4600 series radon, is an Intel Core i5 750 chip set
Also since I have never done this before a stupid is can I just shutdown rip out the old one and shove the new one in and then everything will be hunky dorey once the drivers are updated?

i think there's a bios setting for "init display first" depending on it the onboard could be default disabled.
You are absolutely correct IGP>PCI>PCIEI is the configuration I would need. Thank you sir, you saved me a 100 dollars. Games run pretty smoothly on high settings with the existing chipset I have so wasn't too pressing to upgrade.
