  1. i just purchased a 9600PRO today and i am curious if installed it right..

    basically... iplugged the card into the AGP slot, plugged the monitor on it.. n turned it on..

    i downloaded a driver from ati.com n installed it, n restarted..

    it seems to work fine n all.. jus somethin seems a lil slow. :S neway.. i couldnt find my old display driver under control panel > add/remove so i went into device manager .. but it was already gone.. it shows now its ATI display drivers der..

    did ATI driver automically take out the old intel extreme graphics drivers??

    also after all that, i found the driver in add/remove... its called intel extreme graphics blah blah.. so i took that out...

    neway im not 100% sure i did everything right, so please help me out =D

    thank u very much

    You should uninstall old drivers first before installing new ones. Also, you should disable your onboard graphics in the BIOS to avoid conflicts with the graphics card drivers.
