I use the integrated graphics on my 3570k ATM, but I have ordered a GTX 670. My question is: will i need to remove any drivers before I install my new GPU?

PS. my MB is an ASUS pro and all the drivers are installed

No. Just install the new ones after connecting your new GPU

But its good to uninstall graphic driver before adding discrete gpu. Sometime problem may occur.

I'm in the same situation as Tomtom. Both of the above statements seem to be in contradiction... is it best to uninstall the integrated graphics drivers, or not?

I got the PNY and the instruction manual seems to tell me that all I have to do is change something in the UEFI (the "Primary Display Adapter" needs to be set to "PCI"). I've had bad luck since I've started building this computer, it's my first one and I really don't want to screw this up. Last time I tried to install a discrete GPU it was a Radeon HD 5450, and things didn't go well...

I know I said there's no problem but you don't lose anything by uninstalling them. It does not take much time either
