Default Upgrading video card for s6500nx

Just got a compaq s6500nx. I looked inside and there is an AGP slot.

If I upgrade to a new video card will I have to disable the integrated
graphics? How would I go about doing this?

The onboard video should auto-disable when you install an AGP card.

No, Installing the video drivers for your new video card will disable
the onboard video. I recently had it done. Your device manager
should be nice and clean afterwards.
