    Visiontek Radeon 2400 Pro Video Card - 256MB DDR2, PCI (was gonna post link but i cant due not having 5 post anyhow it was on tigerdirect)

    but the question i was wondering wouldnt it just be better to completely remove the old video card and just use the new one? also does anyone see any problems about me running this video card? i dont know much about video cards can u overclock it like u can with ram?

    Unless you are talking about some other card than the Intel Extreme Graphics, you can't remove it because it is built into the motherboard. You shouldn't have any problems using this Radeon card but without knowing more than the sketchy information you provided it is hard to say for certain.
