When switching from an amd card to an nvidia card should I do anything before I install the video card?

I'm getting a GTX 660(NON-TI) to switch out with my 7750. So my question is do I just take out my old video card pop in the new one and everything should work? I don't have too much experience with this so I would appreciate a full detailed explanation.

    just wondering but do I have to uninstall the amd drivers? Or can I just plug in the new card and uninstall the AMD drivers then.
  4. Uninstalling first is the best way to do it.

    Is it because they might conflict and the monitor won't turn on or something like that?

    Basically, windows would probably freak out and you could have problems.
