Going from GTX 960 to GTX 1080 driver install question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Currently I am using the latest drivers from Nvidia. Can I just put the card in and go? Or should I uninstall drivers/physx first and reinstall them again with the new card?

I would definitely install the new drivers for the 1080 - it is significantly different architecture.

- DL the latest drivers and save to desktop,
- Uninstall drivers with the old card (use DDU),
- power off PC and disconnect from wall,
- install new card and then boot and install the new drivers.

It's always best to uninstall the old drivers even if you're reinstalling the same ones with a new card. I always uninstall and then just click the option on Nvidia's page to do the "fresh install" or something like that where it removes the old drivers and reinstalls the new ones.

Excellent. Thank you both! Last question. I have my monitor calibrated. I use Colormunki Display to be exact. Would I need to re-calibrate it again with the new card? headscratch.gif

I don't believe you would have to since the program you're using to calibrate hasn't changed? Someone else may be able to chip in more info with that particular software but I think you should be good. You could always screen shot or write down what a majority of the settings are at and then recheck them after the driver install of new card.
