What's the process these days for switching from NV to AMD?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Is there still some kinda driver sweeper program? I'm going from SLI 570s to 1 290x. I wouldn't mind keeping one 570 to use for physx, but AFAIK physx never really took off and there's no amazing advantage, also NV blocked physx on mixed GPU machines I think.

Anyway, what should I do when the 290x gets here and specifically in what order?

You need to get constitutional bill signed by the members of the green brigade that one of their comrades are switching sides. Then go to a local visa office and get your migration papers in order....oh noes, you already placed the order tongue.gif

OT: You uninstall as usual the current NV drivers, then restart to safe mode and use the DDU program to get rid of any remaining files from installation. Then restart back to normal mode and install the AMD drivers. Thats what I do every driver installation, but gets rid of any residual files from either installation.
