I have this computer, bought it back in '97.
dinosaur now.
K6 chip, 233 MHz, 32 MB, 3.2 GB, etc.
real old stuff compared to now-a-days.

anyway, just wondering if there are any techies here,
I'd like to know if I can disconnect the onboard video card and install a more recent one into an available slot.

any help would be appreciated.

It would probably eat up your memory to put in a new one (so you add more), then you may want a better sound card (So you buy another one), and if you DO replace the vid card (buy that), need more HD space (buy another HD), want a CD-Burner (buy that) and a bigger monitor (buy that) and a better printer and maybe a scanner (buy them) and figure out how to disable the on-board systems, you'll have ended up spending more money on upgrading than if you buy a new one.. They are getting dirt cheap.

I used to work at CompUSA, and the techs HATED trying to disable the onboard stuff, it always took a lot longer than they thought.

Just tryin to save you a little $$!
