I was just wondering how I set up the BIOS when I install a new graphics card.

The card is a GeForce FX5200 if that is needed. Thx!

Hi

You don't normally need to change anything in the bios, especially if you are replacing the video card with one of the same type (i.e replacing an AGP card with another AGP card).

If you are adding an AGP card and your original video card was onboard (i.e integrated into the motherboard), then again, the system should automatically detect the new card & disable the onboard one without you having to change anything in the bios.
