NVidia Viper 770 Ultra

This card came with a dell desktop pc bought a couple of years ago. I would like to be able to move it to a new system amd 1200+ 512 ram 40 gb hd and onboard graphics. When i inserted it into the AGP slot and plugged the monitor in i just got a black screen. How do i fix this? Or is it not possible to use that card on this system?

My bet. You may need to set a BIOS setting to tell it which to use as the boot video. Look for AGP/PCI and set to AGP.

Beware this issue. I benchmarked an old Nvidia TNT2 against an onboard 3D card and the onboard won!

You can't. It's something you do just after the machine starts. It will be in your machine or motherboard manual.

Press the Del key or F1, or F2 while the computer is starting up. Which key you need will vary depending upon the computer. This should get you to a BIOS-editing screen.
