I have a new computer with an Asus P5KPL-CM motherboard. I am currently running 2 monitors on a GeForce 8400 GS card with one using the VGA and one using DVI. The motherboard also has onboard graphics and I would like to run a 3rd. monitor if possible.

Does anyone know if the onboard graphics can be enabled while the other graphics card is installed or does the onboard get automatically disabled when the card is installed.

Check the manual. Some boards let you run with onboard graphics and a dedicated card. Others, um, won't. :)
