How do I uninstall old GPU drivers without the old card?

My old GPU (2GB GTX 960) died a death and I had to send it back to the manufacturers.

They have replaced it with a 4GB GTX 1050Ti as they no longer make my model.

I’m lead to believe I should uninstall the old drivers before installing the new card but how do I do that if I don’t have access to the old card?

My Mobo is the ASUS® M5A97 R2.0 (DDR3, USB3.0, 6Gb/s) so I don’t think I have intergrated graphics?

    (This is unnecessary, but it won't hurt, and GPU drivers can go bad for non new GPU reasons)

    If you have graphics or driver issues, one of the most common fixes is a clean uninstall and removal of your graphics drivers.

    To uninstall your drivers, first download and run Display Driver Uninstaller, and follow it's recommendations of booting into safe mode and ect.
    (This is a direct download link so you don't grab the wrong version)

    You'll download a compressed file called "[Guru3D.com]-DDU.zip"
    Right click and choose extract.
    Go into the folder and run the DDU v##.##.exe
    This will extract more files to this folder.
    Run Display Driver Uninstaller.exe
    Choose Yes when it asks you to boot into SafeMode.
    After you've rebooted into safe mode.
    When DDU comes up, if it hasn't selected your GPU manufacturer (Nvidia/AMD/Intel) then choose it from the drop down list
    Press the Clean and Restart option
    If a window comes up asking to disable the Windows automatic installation of display drivers click yes.

    After (or before removing the old drivers, just put the new ones on the desktop or somewhere handy) rebooting back into Windows, manually download the latest drivers from Nvidia or AMD, don't use auto detect, choose you GPU model and OS from the drop down lists.
