Drivers first?

post #1 of 4

Hello,
Just wondering if your supposed to install drivers for you GPU before you install the hardware into your computer or if it really makes any difference.
Thanks,
EFR

Not really. I always install the drivers with the hardware already running. No problems yet in many years.
