Actually AMD said all you have to do is install the new drivers right over the last ones. I do that if I am going from a WHQL to a WHQL driver. No need to uninstall the last ones and I have never had a problem. Hell when steam updates your AMD drivers it just writes the new ones over the old ones and that is the official method from AMD.

Unless you are messing around with beta drivers there should be no need to uninstall and then install.

These may be up for sale soon. I cannot believe I am saying this, but these drivers may cause me to go green.

You'll be pretty mad if the finally fix the driver in a month or so. Give them some time, I'm sure they will. If you don't play MW3, you should try the 8.95.5 driver for BF3, works great.

Its fine outdoors but in caves etc I actually warp back and forward its that bad. I just run Skyrim in fullscreen-windowed as its fine with just a single card

That still sounds like a lot more trouble to go through than just clicking "Install" like with new Nvidia drivers. Just something to get used to I guess...

Well,

Frankly, I've been using AMD GPUs for years (except when I had a sad episode of getting the, imo, crappy gtx 590), and all I've EVER done is uninstall CCC, reboot, install CCC.
Never had any problems about that, I think. Every problem I had related to CCC was expected (poor skyrim performance etc), and had nothing to do with my particular installation.
I went, without a problem from a 5870 to a 6990 to a 7970... and never used this wipe method or safe mode procedure.

So, I'm not saying the problems don't exist, just that I've never experienced them. All I had to do to install my 7970 was uninstall CCC -> take 6990 out --> plug 7970 --> boot, install CCC, reboot, good to go.
