Well my current video card is the one built into the mb. But that one always crashes and freezes and my display looks all wierd. From my old computer I have a working video card. I was wondering if and how I can install the other video card into my computer and set that as my main one.

Installing a new video card should automatically disable the onboard
You might need to install the correct video drivers from the manufacturers website if WIndows doesnt automatically detect it

What is the make/model # of the card?
In the beginning there was the command line.

COPIED FROM LINK ABOVE:
The last set of drivers officially released for the Voodoo 3 on Win9x was version 1.07.00. For Win2000 the latest version is 1.03.00.[10] After 3dfx shut its doors 3rd party drivers for Windows 98/98SE and XP were developed by loyal 3dfx customers.
