Gi guys. I'm planning to swap out my current GPU (GT220... I know...) with a new one (HD7790 TurboDuo OC). I'm just wondering, if I swap out the old Vcard with the new one, Do i have to reactivate windows? I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit BTW.

Yeah, after you boot up, windows will automatically install the drivers for your card. (Or you'll have to do it manually). But you won't need to re activate windows.

Which version of windows do you have by the way. The guy in video is running Windows XP and there can be a re activation prompt in XP. But not in Vista or higher.
