I have a 530 full (not s) and from what i remember i will auto detect it ,but it will still allocate shared ram to the onboard video card unless you change it to use the PCI slot in the bios. You'll still need to install the drivers inside Windows but it should boot up with video in Windows.

I don't know if the msi n210 has a low-profil bracket for your computer though.

it does come with a low pro kit and i just put it in and loaded the drivers and went into bios and turned off the onboard video card and it is up and running now. thank for the help
