New build question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm putting together an AMD build. FX 6300 and a 7850. I have everything together but have not taken delivery on the graphics card yet. My question is should I wait to install the graphics card and do the fresh install then? The other option is to just install my GTX 660 for now get everything up and running and then put the new gpu in when it arrives in a few days.

Heck yeah, why wait! Get that beast running with the 660. It's just a different driver installation with the card that's in the post. Clean out the Nvidia drivers when it arrives and enjoy!thumb.gif

Go ahead, just don't forget to uninstall the old drivers first or you can have some weird problems.

I went ahead and put it together. Friday the 7850 will be here. Should I use driver sweeper in safe mode to remove all nvidia software?
