Onboard video to an actual card

If I were wanting to buy a graphics card, but the computer I want to put it into already has onboard video (HD3200), do I need to do anything other than just put the new card in and install drivers?
I'm a bit new here, let me know if i did anything wrong.

  1. Best answer
    Sometimes there's a switch in the BIOS that is used to pick the Primary Display adapter, and it usually has the options of: PCIe or IGP. Understand the PCIe is the card, not the onboard graphics.
  2. usually, it's all you need to do (plus you might have to switch it on the bios settings) . also check that the power supply can handle it.
