Hi, i just purchased a new graphics card (on it's way now)
i currently own a hd 7750 but i'm upgrading to a hd 7870.

I'm buying the graphics card 2nd hand so it's not coming with the driver disk, and when i go to amd's website to download the driver for it, it seems as though there is 1 driver for all the hd 7xxx series. I'm up to date with the latest amd catalyst control center drivers, will this mean i won't have to update my driver, and if i do, where can i find the hd 7870 driver specifically. Thanks

Best solution

if you have the latest drivers, then no you dont need to. but i would uninstall the drivers, swap cards, and reinstall drivers.

ok sorry for sounding stupid (i'm new to all this).. basically i should...
1) uninstall current driver
2) remove hd 7750
3) install hd 7870
4) install same driver that i previously uninstalled

is this correct?
oh and thanks so much for such a quick reply
