I'm looking for the proper procedure to install a new Nvidia video card in my existing LMDE machine that is currently using onboard intel graphics.
I've read the nvidia sticky post and many other posts on the subject, but I'm nervous about just going ahead and doing it since I have a system that I'm happy with now.
Ok, some key questions:
Should I install the video card first, but keep my monitor plugged into onboard video until I have the driver installed properly?
Do I need to disable the onboard video in the bios? Remove (blacklist or remove) the driver? Before or after plugging the monitor into the new video card?
Do I need to power off before moving the monitor to the new card?
