Mobo VGA Drivers with GPU/Drivers installed?

Level 8
My PC build has the Asus Z170i Pro Gaming motherboard. I also have a 980 Ti GPU installed. Everything is working fine. But the motherboard has integrated video ports and I didn't install the VGA drivers from the Asus support downloads yet. In Device Manager under display Adapters it only shows one entry for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti. If I install the Asus VGA drivers will Windows 10 switch to the VGA drivers as default or stay with the 980 Ti GPU driver? I don't really need the VGA drivers right now, that is unless my GPU hardware were to fail sometime in the future. What should I do and what would happen if I do?

Hi Steve N. Mavronis

Just install your new card. No need to worry about the onboard graphics. You can have them both active if you want or disable onboard in Bios. (uses less RAM)
Best to select in Bios your PCI-E as primary.
Install the latest driver from EVGA when you register your card and get EVGA Precision X-16 at the same time.
The graphics port you connect to will determine the output to your monitor.

I tried to install the latest Intel VGA driver from my Asus motherboard's support download page and get this error?

"This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software"

I checked my UEFI BIOS too. It automatically makes a installed PCIe GPU the default.
