Not every HP motherboard requires you to disable the onboard video.In some it is auto sensed by the BIOS on bootup. Buy your PCI Express x16 graphics card and install it. The only thing to really consider is that most of the upscale PCI-e cards require seperate PCI-e connector from the power supply. So if you go to a mondo PCI-e GFX card you will probably have to upgrade the power supply as well.
