Will installing a separate graphics card restore normal graphics ?

The X server under FreeBSD is not giving normal graphics with my new AMD 
A6-6400K processor + Asus A68HM motherboard with onboard ATI Radeon 8470 
graphics. A lot of the text of Gnome's Applications menu list  is 
missing and strange streaks appear at a few places on the screen.

Would it help if I were to install a separate graphics card ? I have no 
idea whether it is possible to disable the onboard graphics adapter, but 
if that is possible, I can try using a dedicated VGA card.

Thanks for any advice.
