What you should do is, keep the nVidia drivers installed, don't remove the card and send me that sweet 6950 so I can unlock it.

Nah, I just made the switch from a 8800GT to 5850. Uninstall all the nVidia stuff, reboot, run driver cleaner, reboot, then switch out the cards and install the ATI drivers.

Within Windows:

Step 1:
For Applications:

Control Panel-->Programs and Features-->"Any Nvidia EVGA associated Applications"-->double click or right click or hit uninstall tab

Step 2:
For Nvidia Driver:

Control Panel-->Device Manager-->Display Adapters-->Nvidia 8800-->Uninstall.

Step 3:
Download CCleaner if need be for any leftovers of registry errors.

Driver Sweeper is not for noobies, some people are not aware of what to do with it, without researching or "proper scrutiny navigaton and reading".
