If you're going from Nvidia to ATI or vice versa, definitely yes.

If you're just going from an ATI driver to a new ATI driver, then no.

Use this link by clicking here. I recommend using key words "driver sweeper"

You may also take a shortcut and use the following link which took me 3 seconds to find by using the above link and key words.
