Is it okay to Install a new Sound card on a motherboard that has integrated sound card

Is it okay to Install a new Sound card on a motherboard that has integrated sound card? How do I make it work without sound card conflict and make the new sound card as the default in Windows XP Professional? Thank you very much.

Enter the BIOS and disabled the integrated sound card.

It's perfectly fine to install a sound card in a PC that has integrated audio. And like crawfordits says, you can disable the integrated in BIOS... but if BIOS is unfamiliar territory, you can also disable integrated audio by going to your Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager... then expanding the Sound, Video and Game Controller group. Then simply right click the integrated audio component and select "disable". This will eliminate any potential conflicts. Then install your new sound card per manufacturer's instructions.
