Completely uninstalling nVidia drivers for 5850

I'm upgrading from a 9800gx2 to an ati 5850, but I'm not sure the correct way to go about uninstalling drivers. I'm reading that the 5850 can be very finicky when it comes to drivers, so I want to make sure I am doing it properly. What's the best way?

    All video cards have a basic mode(640x320) or something like that that does not need a driver.
