Switching from integrated graphics to msi hd 7870

I've been running Intel HD Graphics 2000 for awhile now and I finally bought a good GPU. The ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127662 ). So how should I switch over I know I will probably have to go into my bios settings and make sure its the primary video adapter or something.. but should I uninstall my integrated graphics drivers? I will never use them again and if I do I could just re-install. So would that be a good idea? or what should i do :/

Also
The (Catalyst Software Suite) and MSI Afterburner which is on the links below.. or what do I need to download to get me up and running I don't want to install the drivers/utilities on the disk I want to download the latest stuff and install that.

  1. Shouldnt have to. Just switch it off IGP in BIOS and plug in whatever cable you are using as an output, install drivers, enjoy awesomeness. Always get the newest drivers from AMD btw.
  2. Well what drivers do i download ??

    Whatever the newest drivers are from AMD, thought I was pretty clear on that. Not the drivers from the manufacturers website they are generally outated.
