adding pci-e graphics card to replace onboard

Specs: Windows7
I purchased a Nvidia Geforce 8400gs pci-e with dvi-only connection to new monitor. Currently have an on-board VGA. What bios do I change for computer to use new card? Options are PCI Latency (enabled/disabled) or Palette Snooping. These seem to be the only graphics options that can be altered in the bios. Do I need to allocate an IRQ? I am stumped.

Those settings should not be touched. You should be looking for a way to disable the integrated graphics or to lower the shared RAM or to change the "initial display first" (or something similar) from integrated to PCI-e. And some systems auto-disable the onboard video when a card is detected.

Post the make/model of your motherboard or system.

I hope you didn't buy the 8400GS for gaming because it is NOT a gaming card.
