I have purchased the board listed above and I am unsure about the video card in the mother board and if it will interfere with my 9800GX2. The board features a Intel GMA x4500MHD which is integrated. If I put my 9800GX2 into the board will it start up using that card, or is there something I have to do in the bios to by pass the on-board graphics. Thanks.

Go to the BIOS and find the setting to disable the onboard graphics. That should do the trick for these motherboards that have native onboard graphics cards.

In Intel's manual for the DG43GT it states "When a PCI Express Graphics (x16, x8, or x4) add-in card is installed on the Desktop Board, the Intel GMA X4500 graphics controller is disabled." so you don't or can't do anything in the BIOS since it is done automatically.
