Default Re: The ongoing Dell 3K and FX 5200 PCI card story

The computer is currently running and using the new card so is there any problem with both of them being there?
There isn't any yellow exclamation mark on either of them. The computer boots and runs ok. Should I just leave well enough alone?
Id say if its working fine, leave it. I doubt it will hurt anything. If you do run into graphics related problems though, make sure to look there first. Im sure theres some way to get rid of it, but its probably too much of a pain to do unless its necessary.
