531CF mobo- help turn off onboard gfx card

I have this aged motherboard (from what I can tell its this one!!). It has a built in Build-in SIS 6326 High Performance AGP V.G.A card, but I would like put another PCI graphics card in as it seems I can only allocate 8mb shared memory to it in the bios(would like a bit more oomph)

So, I put the new card in. I can't find any specific bios settings for the onboard card and it defaults to the original built in graphics card.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Hrmmm, if it doesn't have an option somewhere in the bios to switch the order from AGP first to PCI first, and theres no way to disable that AGP card, then you're kind of stuck :/

Thanks for the reply, I'll take another look at the bios this afternoon. But I am getting the feeling I'm going to be stuck with the old onboard video.

for sale: 1x32mb PCI sis315E (hardly used!)
