Do I need to remove HD 4000 driver for new video card?

My PC is using Intel HD 4000 graphics right now from my i5 3570K and I just bought a HD 7870.

Do I just need to plug in the 7870 and install drivers and hook the HDMI to the card and it'll work?

Or do I need to uninstall hd 4000 drivers first?

My motherboard is a Gigabyte Z77 DS3H just in case I need to do anything in BIOS.

Just plug in new card and that's all. No need to uninstall Intel drivers.

7870 should be detected as primary display adapter.

Best regards :)

hmm if you do have issues you may need to disable the onboard adaptor if you don't get a signal after plugging in your new card.
