    Default z77 extreme 6 and additional graphics card support

    I am a virgin. I built a machine last night with Z77 Extreme 6 Motherboard and I added a GEForce 9800GT Graphics card. I haven't even installed OS yet. How can I run both the internal graphics card and the 9800GT at the same time. I can turn one off and one on in bios. But I want both on. Is it possible? The reason I got the integrated graphics and the separate graphics card was to run 2-4 monitor at the same time.

    Thanks.

    Joe

    Na. Teasing and hand-holding "virgins' is far more exciting.

    BTW, you're welcome.
