You don't have to disable it when you put your new card in......put your new card in ..restart the PC ..install the drivers for it....then restart your PC...it may disable the onboard automatically on restart.....

If not go to Bios by tapping F2 or DEL key on startup and see if there is a place to disable it there.

For the majority of new motherboards, the bios value is set to read from a pcie/pci vga device before going to on-board video. So it should find your video card and use that as primary vga adapter before it even tries to go to on-board video.
