i just got my GTX 470, however... last time i fiddled around with my GPU was to press the CMOS button because i screwed up some settings in my attempt to unlock my phenom ii tri core. (i updated BIOS later, unlock was successful, but it was unstable...)
Anyway... what i do first? install new GPU or install new drivers?
i forgot what that little lever does at the end of the PCI-E x16 lane on my Gigabyte mobo. Do i have to fiddle with it, or do i just press down on my new GPU?
and the power connectors... i got the 6-pin and 6+2 pin, do i just pull them out or do you have to squeeze then pull out?
I've heard it done so many ways jyjjy. I think it didn't work well with XP because the windows drivers weren't as good as vista/7. When I put my 7600GT in for Vista, I just plopped the card in, though I was using drivers for my integrated 7050 anyways...
I did my described method above for my HD4650 though, minus driver sweeper.
