Supposedly you are supposed to uninstall the old drivers and then install the new drivers. I haven't done it that way in years though. I just download and install the new ones over the top like you said.

You should uninstall the current drivers. Installing over top might work but can corrupt the driver files.

Right,i agree with the posters above.
The best way to install a new driver is a clean install,here is how:
1_Download and install "Driver sweeper" from Guru3d.com and install
2_Go to add/remove programs and uninstall the driver and reboot
3_Boot to safe mode and open driver sweeper,then click on ATI and then click on clean
4_Reboot and boot normally to windows and install the new drivers after that u need a restart,and its finished :)
