So you would either be lucky and have a BIOS option to turn off the integrated Intel graphics or like me be unlucky and have no BIOS option and be stuck using the Intel graphics (which in recent years aren't so bad and are starting to actually perform better - but then there's the S3TC issue which is a whole 'nother thing with open source graphics)...
