(solved)If I remove 6950 and put in 5770 to test, do I need to mess with drivers

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I want to pop in a 5770 for a few minutes just to test it, do I have to do anything with the 11.5b drivers that are installed?

Also, what if I put it in the 2nd 8x lane slot, would the PC just ignore it all together?...and can't test it that easier way

You shouldnt have to do a damn thing, but swap cards.

If you are running catalyst drivers you should be fine, you need to change nothing but the cards.

Those are unified drivers and you should be fine.

Drivers are the same, just put in the new card and you are good to go.

no your pc won't ignore it if you move it to the 2nd 8x slot. it will recognize it as a 2nd gpu.
