Do I need to Deactivate onboard graphics before installing new cards?

    No, you should not delete the drivers for your on-board graphics (ever). Just install the graphics card, boot up your system with the monitor attached to the card. Windows will boot using basic VGA drivers. Go to AMD.com, download and install the latest drivers for your system. Reboot once more and you should be good to go.
