Not certain for the MSI boards but it should be an option in the BIOS.

Stalker, it's not under bios -> chipset? Are you having any problems?

I don't have any problems with graphic card(except that pc freezing), but I can't found that option in BIOS.

Under the Advanced BIOS Features, there is a Primary Graphics Adapter option....change it to PCI-E.

I'm pretty sure the x just refers to the slot, like x4, x16.

**EDIT - sorry, by that I meant pci-e and pci ex would be the same

My experiences are that the introduction of a dedicated graphics card, once detected by BIOS normally because the first use device and the onboard chip becomes disabled accordingly.

Mine also..once a dedicated Graphics card is installed it becomes the default...Sound is different and needs to be disabled if you have a dedicated sound card.
