Removing video drivers

I currently have an ATI 4870 card ... Being delivered today is my brand new nVidia GTX 470 ...

Do I need to remove the ATI drivers in my computer? Or do I just take out my ATI card and put my 470 in and boot up the computer and let Windows 7 install the drivers for the nVidia?

Just want to make sure goes smoothly for the install process. Thanks!

  1. Remove the ATi drivers first, then fit the new card and install drivers.
  2. Or do a clean install, just to make sure nothing goes wrong,here is how
    1_Download and install "Driver sweeper" from and install
    2_Go to add/remove programs and uninstall the driver and reboot
    3_Boot to safe mode and open driver sweeper,then click on ATI and then click on clean
    4_Reboot and boot normally to windows and install the new drivers after that you need to restart,and its done
