Ordered my Asus, first time on team red. So I'm thinking I will download the drivers, then use driver sweeper to clean my old ones out, swap the cards and then install the new drivers? Right?

Just uninstall the old drivers, install the card and install the latest drivers.
Driver Sweeper can make a hell of a mess.

So now it's two people with ASUS!

DO NOT, I repeat, do not use Driver Sweeper. Instead, use Atiman Uninstaller. This will get rid of all the driver entries, application profiles, and other bits that are sometimes left behind. The best thing about it is that it does all of the work for you (uninstalling, rebooting, etc.).

I'll be adding myself to the list once my card comes in the mail.

Too specific on the model number, IMO.
I'll fix it and to reflect that you have two of them.

I didn't know if you just wanted us two write "HD 7970" or the full one.
No problem, all fixed.

If you want me to update the clocks or something like that when you get your card, let me know.

yessir, but i forgot to select rush processing of my order. hopefully it doesn't throw a wrench in the works. i was acting like a cross between a giddy school girl and a ******ed monkey during the checkout process.
