    Normally the 6150 LE is an integrated chip on many motherboards..., so
    how'd you get it out of there?

    Go into your BIOS, disable the integrated video (or set video memory to
    none, sometimes this is an OEM's way of disabling), and use whatever
    recent drivers you like with the 9800GT. Also, "Primary VGA" might have
    to be set to PCIE.

    I can't think of any systems I've seen as of late with a jumper setting
    on the motherboard to disable onboard video, but take a look anyway.
