Tags: Radeon GPUs Drivers Software Graphics Last response: March 8, 2012 3:27 AM in Graphics & Displays Share vollman1 February 28, 2012 6:33:53 PM I bought a new GPU for my main system and will be transferring the old GPU to my secondary. Both GPUs are 6950s and I would like to ask for advice on how best to swap out the cards without any issues (such as with drivers). So.... What process should I use when swapping these cards out? Please be specific and add links to software if needed.
