Switched to Nvidia, Can I delete ATI registry entries?

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...
  6. oh, i think u got a problem with that reg like a conflict or something like that...
    if u are fine then just continue with that card... :)

    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?
  8. as far as your system are stable and run great then it's okay... :D

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

    Thanks!
