    Hi,

    You should probably uninstall and disable in the bios, but I don't think it will matter too much.

    If you won't use the onboard card you should disable it in the BIOS, removing it's software first won't be a bad thing though.
    Then again you could also use it for something like a headset, a secondary simply soundcard for a headset is very handy.
