How to intsall drivers?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i just got my HD 6870 today, i must say its an impressive card. Looks like a beast especially with the shiny chrome triforce cooler from gigabyte.

So how do i go about installing this if im coming from Nvidia. I heard driver conflicts will occur if i dont do this properly. Do i just uninstall Nvidia drivers and Nvidia related software in safemode, run driversweeper, shut down, install new card, boot, install amd drivers?

Or do i just run driversweeper without uninstalling nvidia stuff?

What do you recommend i do?

So in driver sweeper there are 3 Nvidia entries:

NVIDIA - Chipset
NVIDIA - Display
NVIDIA - PhysX

Out of the three i only check the display and physics right?
