I'm upgrading my GT520 to a GTX560 and was wondering if i have to uninstall drivers for the gt520 before i install the GTX560. I read some forums with people talking about disabing drivers from the BIOS. I don't want to get anywhere near the BIOS. Don't trust myself with that. If i have to do this is there a way i could do this without touching the more technical stuff. Also would i just install the gtx560 drivers from nvidia.com? Someone give me any tips?

Yes! Everytime you install a new graphics card, remove the old drivers first!

Here is a complete guide if it is your first time:

I didn't, I thought all Nvidia cards use the same exact drivers ?

Okay read that very detailed comprehensive thread but was wondering do i uninstall the drivers for the gt520 when the card is in than take it out and put 560 in and than install the 560 or do i install the 560 with the 520 in and than put the 560 in?

Remove the drivers before you remove the 520.

Some users on here say there shouldn't be a problem with just installing over the top of it in case you can just roll back. are there disadvantages to this? Also i hear some people saying you can just disable the drivers through windows.
