Hi guys. I ordered an EVGA 670 FTW a few days ago and it arrived earlier today.



My current set up is:

Intel i5-750 Lynnfield (not OC'd)
ASUS P7P55D EVO LGA 1156 P55 Motherboard
Corsair HX 650 PSU
8 GB Gskill Ripjaws RAM
CM Storm Scout case
CM Hyper 212 HSF
Sapphire HD 5850 1GB
Windows 7 64-bit OS


Before I do anything, I was curious if anyone had any advice on the best course to travel, with respect to the install process. Basically, pointers on card removal, driver removal, installation of new card, it's related software (CD software recommended or not, driver install or updates, etc. I ask cuz I know some of these 670's are a tad sensitive. Be it bundled software for the cards management, or the series driver used. Thanks in advance.

Leave it boxed and ship it to me. That is all :) 
Just make sure you get the newest dirvers from the nviia website and not the CD. Also make sure if you are using ATI drivers now to remove them completely, driver sweeper, boot into safe mode, remove them, etc. Enjoy your new card.

A slight overclock to 3.4-3.6 on the cpu perhaps ?
