So I just switched from a really old ATI Radeon HD 2400, and I purchased a Nvidia GT 610. I have already installed the card and installed the hardware, but I forgot to uninstall the ATI drivers before putting the new card in. What would be the best way of removing the old drivers?

MY way was to get the same driver. When installing again, u have the option to uninstall.
But i believe there is a easier way

If everything works OK why mess with it? Plus if there is no problems then you are living proof that AMD drivers and Nvidia drivers can exist on the same PC.

I thought about it, but my computer is so slow, I saw a little activity from it and I'd like to not have to have 120 threads running that aren't really doing anything. Only minor problem I've seen is that on launch an annoying pop up from Catalyst alerting that my GPU doesn't work with Catalyst.

The easiest way would be to put your old card back in and run the CCC uninstaller.

It's either that or one of those driver sweeper programs and I don't like them myself which is why I don't recommend them.

I guess my last question would be why can't I just uninstall the drivers? Why do I have to put the old card back in and then uninstall it?

Give it a go and see if that works, I have just left the drivers on my system.
