I'm about to change my graphics from GT 520 to HD 6870, but when I go in control panel, Uninstall Programs, I see

Nvidia 3D vision Control Driver
Nvidia 3D Vision Driver
Nvidia Graphics Driver
Nvidia HD Audio Driver
Nvidia PhysX System Software
Nvidia Update

Do I just remove all of these if Im gonna upgrade to a Radeon card? Or is there only one of these I have to uninstall before putting in the 6870?

You may want to make sure that your sound device isn't a Nvidia product. Most likly not but just make sure.

The NVIDIA HD Audio Driver is specific to the audio processor (i.e. based on the Intel HD-audio ("Azalia”) specification) chip used on the NVIDIA graphics cards. Its sole purpose is to pass audio through the HDMI port on the graphics card.

The NVIDIA HD Audio Driver can be safely uninstalled if you're not planning on using the GT 520 anymore.
