It depends on the slot where you want to install the second video card.
If still want to use on-board video, install a PCI card and it can be
superior to the primary one. Your on-board card will be set a primary.
if AGP slot, the on-board will get disabled automatically once you install
this card. Not a problem at all, you will find AGP video card with option to
connect two monitors. Mostly they would support a standard VGA and a DVI port
to connect flat panel monitors.
