  1. Hi,
    I have a P4 3ghz prescot cpu with Intel 915g chipset. Now it has a Integrated 900g graphics card and i also have a ATI x800 XT pci-express card. Does anyone know if its possible to switch to the integrated card without taking out the ATI card? i have looked through the BIOS and tried disabling the pci-express port which had no effect :confused:

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Cheers ;)

    I think almost all boards automatically disable the onboard video when a card is installed. You might have to take the card out, but why, a x800xt is much better than integrated?

    well i have another OS on my spare hdd and it doesnt like the x800 very much. Im really suprised that there is no way to switch between them without physically taking the card out :mad:
