I have a Gigabyte G41-M Combo Motherboard with Integrated Graphics and I am wondering how do I overwrite that with a new graphics card?

The only ways to "overwrite" the integrated graphics of your current motherboard would be to:

  1. Purchase and install a discrete graphics card into the available PCI-Ex16 slot of your motherboard.
  2. Purchase a new motherboard/CPU/RAM with newer integrated graphics.

Can you supply more info?
What do you have now?
What are you thinking of buying?
What is your objective in changing out graphics?
Make/model of your psu will determine how strong of a gpu you can buy.
Your case and dimensions will determine, perhaps the size of graphics card you can buy.

Normally, one just installs the new card, and attach the monitor to it.
The display will be low res until you install the graphics card driver.

Ok, so you're going for a core system replacement. This will give you the new graphics. Once your OS is reinstalled and drivers from your motherboard's support page are installed, there's nothing more you need to do. On your old system, the graphics were embedded with your motherboard. On your new system, the graphics are embedded with your processor. You will be good to go.
