  1. Hi

    Did you uninstall the old AMD drivers before installing the nvidia drivers?
  2. No, not before but i have uninstalled them yesterday
  3. Turns out amd catalyst was still there, let me try now and see how games run
  4. I'd reinstall windows. When dealing with AMD drivers, it's impossible to completely remove them from your computer and their remnants poison Nvidia graphics performance. I don't know whether they do this on purpose or not, but that's the case, and personally, I haven't found any way at all to fix it without reinstalling windows.
