I tried to look at the manual for your mobo at asus but the server seemed down. Anyway since its got integrated nvidia graphics I would say its a safe be that you need to disable it. If there isn't an option in your bios then check for a jumper on your mobo to disable it.
If it aint broke, fix it till it is

Browse through all the settings on your bios. There might be something there about the onboard video. If not there should be a jumper that you could change to disable it.

Ok Im pretty sure I found the answer for you...
Look for the PCI configuration page under the advanced options in your bios.
There is a selection for Primay VGA Bios. The options are AGP VGA Card and Onboard VGA Card. Select AGP VGA Card and that will disable the onboard video and allow you to use your agp card.
