ATI to NVIDIA, what do I need to do.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Obviously outside of physically installing a the new card. I've used ATI cards for years and years, this time I went with a GTX 460 (goodbye Radeon 4670 lol).

Specifically, driver wise, do I need to run some type of cleaning utility, and if so which one? Will I need to reinstall Win 7?

Anything else you can think of that I might need to do?

Thanks!

Just sit back, relax, and enjoy...

Use driver sweeper to clear your current drivers, then install the NVidia ones.

Then overclock it, you just gotta overclock it.

No you won't have to do a reinstall win7. With Nvidia they have an option for a fresh install which deletes old drivers. Just dload the latest driver and run it and it will give you that clean install option.

Awesome, glad it will be easy. Sucked going from AMD to Intel and having to reinstall OS because of the chipset change
