Windows 7: Installed new graphics card have question

Windows 7 64 bit
Installed new graphics card have question


I recently built my first computer and just installed a Gigabyte GTX 550 Ti card. I have a Gigabyte z68x-ud3h-b3 mobo running of course windows 7 64

Since this is my first build and my first graphics card I was wonder if I need to do anything in the way of adjusting my mobo to use the graphic card and not the one stalled on the mobo, or is there any other adjustment I have to make.

Thanks in advance for your help

As far as I'm aware, you don't need to make any sort of adjustment.

Video cards: frequently asked questions

Although intregated graphics are becoming more powerful, they struggle to run the high-end games that a dedicated graphics card can.

You could, if you wish, disable your integrated graphics in the BIOS.

All you should need to do is install the drivers from either the cd that came with the card or go to and get them their.
Once you have installed the drivers go to your device manager and make sure the card you want is listed and working properly.

If for some reason it isn't you may need to disable the onboard graphics in the bios.
