Usually when you insert a card it automatically detects that there's a new card, and shuts off the integrated. Inside your BIOS would be an option to, "automatically detect VGA output," or something along those lines, and it would be set to PCI.

It should automatically switch to the PCI video card but you should still go into your bios and disable the built in VGA adapter.
