most desktops disable on board GPU in favor of the better add-on card. Your best bet is get an add on card with multiple outputs and hook all your monitors to that card. Using 2 different cards is a pain in the aft.
Find out what type of Nvidia graphics card it is, then goto the nvidia site and download the installer from them. The installer usually supports multiple families/models of cards. But yes, you need to download the installer for Win XP pro. You can do it manually, or have it automatically scan for the hardware and download the correct driver automatically.
Here's a link to the automatic --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us
Your aspire does not include a PCI-Express power connector... that's why you'll need to buy an adapter cable that transforms two other type of connectors (molex) available from your power supply into the one you need to feed power to your video card.
your compu has the nvidia Ge Force 6100 graphics card..please check for the latest drivers from the nvidia website..some games are quite demanding,to know if your compu can run it use this nifty tool:http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest hope it helps!

2 As for the graphic card you seem to know a little about computers so you can install and pci express x 16 graphics card that only needs one slot but remember some need power and this mean you my have to upgrade your power supply.So really you can by any single slot pci express graphics card for your computer so it comes down to how much you want to spend. 3.Ok for ram your max will be 4 gbs most likely ddr2 which mean that you have 4 ram spot in your computer. hope this help please vote for me.
