Default Next Step

I have a Gateway Computer - Media Center 2005.
Just bought and installed a ATI All in Wonder x1300 Graphics/PVR card 256. I also installed a 450 watt power supply. the Gateway only had 300 and I didn't want to fry anything.

The Gateway has Onboard Video, I'm pretty sure it disabled it oncce I installed the new card. I think this because the text is much cleaner and I was able to up my resolution.

How would I check to see if actually is working?

Also I see people say you should download the latest drivers. Where would I do this?

this is where you'd get the drivers for.

and you're trying to see if the onboard video is disabled? wat's the difference if it's on or not?
