Just wondering, when I'm about to install my new graphics card, should I uninstall my current graphics drivers which are for an AMD Radeon hd 8400 onboard graphics. Im just wondering this because I was told some amd graphics cards are capable of doing some kind of hybrid crossfire with certain onboard amd graphics. Thanks in advance~

Actually,the proper way of doing it is,uninstalling the old drivers,doing a driversweep to make sure there are no remains of the old driver and then installing the card. And about the crossifre, I don't think using the 7750 in hybrid CF is a good idea,for they make little or no increase in fps like 2 or 3 fps. And AMD recommends 6 series GPU,on te top of the list,6670 for the hybrid CF. So 7750 in Hybrid CF is nothing but stupid idea.It will run better as a discrete GPU. :)

Thanks a crap ton mate.. And just one quick question, how would i do a driver sweep? Is it just by checking under my display adapters and uninstall the drivers from there? Like for example on my computer I have amd radeon hd 8400. I just go under it and click uninstall right. Is there anything else I'd have to do?

There's a chance of having some leftovers of the old drivers even after uninstalling. Though I wouldn't say it's much of a problem, you could use this software to clean up those leftovers and make sure everything goes fine.
