My Question is: what should the BIOS setting "Internal Graphics Mode" be set to with a PCI-E x16 graphics card? Should it be disabled? Should I leave a small amount of memory for say (I don't know) DOS commands?
My options for this setting are:
4. UMA+Side Port
"UMA Frame Buffer Size" would also apply with options:
I'm thinking of just disabling this because of the VGA card. Anyone know if that's the best setting?
Thank you for your input and sorry if I couldnt't find a post similar to this.

Mondoman had it:
go to BIOS' "Advanced BIOS Features" page (page 45 of your manual) - set "Internal Graphics Mode" to "Disabled";
set "Init Display First" to PEG (assuming you've got it in the x16 slot);
should be good to go...
