  1. I have an hp pavilion 533w and was wondering it there was any way to change out my graphics card even though it is integrated. Ive heard about disabling the integrated one and installing the new one but im not sure how to disable it. Sorry if this is a stupid question :eek:

    :EDIT:
    is this a decent graphics card? [right heeeeere]

    You dont have an AGP slot so you are limited to PCI video cards. To change the video first remove the old video drivers in Add/Remove Programs, Turn off the computer and install the video card. Then boot into the BIOS and change Primary Video Adapter from onboard to PCI.
