Hello everyone, I am uninstalling a Nvidia Geforce 9800gtx, and I had a question about the drivers, looking at the control panel right now I have these options-

NVidia 3d vision driver
Nvidia Drivers
NVidia Graphics Drivers
NVidia HD Audio Drivers
NVidia Physyx System software

I am adding in a Radeon card so my question is, which of the nvidia drivers should I remove?

I know the 3d vision and the graphics have to be uninstalled, but wasnt sure about the other 3?

Thanks in advance.
edit- I am using a ASUS M3N78-VM motherboard also.

Hello and welcome to the forums
Since the other 3 won't be useful,so it's better to uninstall them.Since you're getting an ATI card,I'd recommend doing a clean install.Here is how

1_Download and install "Driver sweeper" from and install
2_Go to add/remove programs and uninstall the drivers(all of 5 of them)
3_Boot to safe mode and open driver sweeper,then click on Nvidia options and then click on clean
4_Reboot and boot normally to windows and install the ATI drivers after that you need to restart,and its done
