OP I went to college for computers and worked as a quality ebgineer for Foxconn at their HP manufacturing plant, I read a couple of the responses, and
it seems they aren't sure, so I will tell you everything you need to know for now and future reference.

Now a video card will onlh work if your moniter is plugged directly into it, it doesn't help support and improve the performance of your onboard
graphics card. It is either or.
If you want to juice up an added card, they make many that can be hooked together to increase performance as 2 are better than one, but they are not
all capable of such feats and or made for it, also 2 different cards will not work in tandem most of the time, it is a rare exception when they
Also all graphics cards are not compatible with all processors and chip sets. So you may need to get a new one for better perfomrance as the onboard
cards are usually junk.
Your best bet if your not knowledgable is to take it or your comps specifications to a pc supplies store and ask for help from the customer service
Hope this helped.
