Lightbulb would this make a difference?

Integrated Xtreme Graphics AGP Video w/ 64 Mb Shared memory which I will take out and put in the Leadtek 6600 that I have at home. (the Integrated gfx card is free)
Would there be any difference if I had both the 6600 and the integrated graphics card in at the same time??
sorry if this is a bad question

um, you can't remove integrated graphics. But the 6600 will be better, yes.

lol!

well check if you have an agp or pci-express slot first (most likely it will be an agp slot.. ). some motherboards don't have agp slots at all, and make you use only integrated. the agp slot would look a little different from the regular pci slots and are usually above the regular pci slots. good luck.

remember to disable the onboard graphics in your bios and uninstall the onboards drivers
