If you install a PCI-E card, the onboard will turn over to the new card by default. No worries.

Or any video device.

It doesn't work together. One or the other. There are ways to use the two, but I'm not sure on that.

You have to have 2 physical and of the same GPU core to crossfire. A 4250 is not compatible with a 6970.

You can not crossfire with onboard video.
