Just like the title says. I properly uninstalled the ATI drivers, etc before switching to an Nvidia card but still noticed a few ATI reg entries. Can I safely delete them? I am using Win 7 64 if it makes any difference.

You have to be joking...clean install Windows because of a couple ATI registry entries? Why? My computer runs fine with them in there, I was just curious as to whether or not I should delete them manually...

I plan to continue with the card, as I sold the 4870 :) 

I am just curious if I could mess something up by deleting the remaining ATI entries. Logic tells me no, as I dont even have an ATI card installed anymore...

Anyone else?

Yea, it is super stable as-is, with the ATI entries. Maybe I will just leave them in there...

Thanks!
