My MSI 780 will be here on Friday. Anything I need to do when it comes?

Should be here on Friday, unless UPS screws me over.

This will be my first time installing a GPU, as I am currently using integrated from my 3770k, and I'm pretty sure I couldn't have done anything about GPUs on my old Laptop.

Basically, when I install it, will there be anything I need to do, besides update drivers? Will I have to disable the integrated graphics (I've heard a few people before mention that some games will try to default to the integrated if it's on)? And if so, how would I do that?

Anything else I should know/do?

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Yes, I already have one on standby, as well as a few choice pigs.

No, you don't need to disable the integrated chip. As soon as you install the nvidia drivers, it'll be the dominant driver. Unlike on laptop, where it switches between the two dependent on the horsepower the activity requires.

Good thing about not disabling the intel driver is that if you remove your GPU, say, in order to send it in to get fixed, your intel chip still works so you can browse the net or use photoshop or whatever when your card is away.

Yeah, I figure I better get it out of my system now, since once it's installed I won't have time for it anymore.

So it only switched between a card and an integrated on a laptop? OK, thanks for letting me know, I thought it would do it on a desktop as well.
