installing dedicated graphics card in asus z87-A motherboard

Does anyone know if bios has to have a change when installing a dedicated graphics card is installed? or does the bios take care of the change it's self? Thanks!

I'm not 100% sure but I think once you install the graphics card and the drivers should be recognized with no problem.

I'm going to take the heat sink off give it a good cleaning and apply some fresh thermal paste and give it a go. Thanks!

Well, I put the card in and my WEI score went from 5.9 to 7.2 with no over clocking. I'm still going to upgrade the old RAM and cooler when my tight, funds allow.
