Solved!

How to switch from integrated graphics to a graphics card.

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion p7-1017c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So, a couple of days ago I put in a new PSU and GPU in my computer. 
The only thing I think I need to do is figure out how to disable integrated graphics through BIOS.
I have already downloaded the drivers.

I'd expect more performance from this graphics card(RX 480) though I do know my CPU will bottleneck it.)
Thank you for any information you have.

Greetings,

Welcome back to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

HP consumer PCs will auto disable onboard graphics when you install a discrete graphics card. This is not your problem.

 

The p7-1017c has a version 7.xx (non-UEFI) BIOS. The 480 was released for sale in 2016 and most likely requires a UEFI BIOS.

 

The 480 is probably not going to work with your PC.

 

You need to get an older Legacy BIOS graphics card. But some manufacturers {Sapphire (Link) or MSI} were making some limited AMD graphics cards (one Nvidia 750 by MSI) SKUs that could run on a Legacy or a UEFI BIOS. The Sapphire cards that can run on both BIOS were found in the (X) Series.
