Graphics card installled correctly?

I recently installed my new graphics card the Geforce Gts 250. Before that i disabled m onboard graphics (RS880) All the drivers seem fine but when i use the dxdiag tool (http://i53.tinypic.com/9ia6ia.jpg) it says my cards DAC type is integrated? However in another place it says im using dedicated graphics memory. (http://i52.tinypic.com/30wa6va.png) This is confusing me so wut do u guys think?

Deathseen2, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Actually it isn't using any system memory. Hopefully this will help explain that reading,

Video Memory Virtualization - A Brief Guide

P.S. Might want ti try a newer driver,

Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7

with than the rather older one (almost a year old nw) that you currently have installed.

I know that its using dedicated graphics memory not system memory, but why does dxdiag still say my card is integrated? (http://i53.tinypic.com/9ia6ia.jpg). Also here (http://i52.tinypic.com/30wa6va.png) it says my RS880 is my display adapter and that it has 1024mb dedicated memory (which is impossible)

Did you uninstall the ATI driver before disabling it in the bios?

As far as the RAMDAC goes, that is normal as it is integrated into the video card whether onboard or a dedicated card.

P.S. It would help to know which P6000 you have as there is several variations of that model.
