I have no direct personal experience of this but I have read others who have had a problem with their machine which could be related to the graphics (but not confirmed) and dell have refused to deal with it because the new card isn't covered by warranty. As soon as you put the old card in, whammy your fully covered again 🙂

Personally I would keep the old graphics card handy just incase.
