On some boards you can enter the bios and turn the onboard video off. On
others simply inserting a video card into the AGP / PCIe slot is enough
to force the change. Third, in a small percentage of cheap boards from
the likes of PC Chips, ASRocks et al that I've encountered there exists
only the ability to change the priority between the on-board and ad-in
cards but not to isolate either one (seems to be a not very good attempt
at SLI).
