Replacing nVidia with 5850 and have drivers question

I just recieved an XFX Radeon 5850 I had ordered. I am replacing a PNY nvidia GeForce 9600 GT. What program should I use, if any, beyond the uninstall routine for the nVidia drivers? Is there anywhere I should look for any remnant for the nVidia drivers before installing the ATI ones and if there is a 3rd party program to remove remnants of drivers should I use it in place of the nVidia driver uninstall or after I use the nVidia uninstall. Also, what version of ATI drivers should I use and where is the best place to get them? Any help is greatly appreciated.
