I am currently running off the intergrated graphics and i am going to buy a GTX 660Ti.
Do I have to uninstall intel HD4000 drivers?
Once i install new graphics card, what will happen to windows themes, programs or the OS itself?
Will i have to do anything but install nvidia drivers? If i do just that will i regain the previous display settings?

P.S - On LinusTechTips sometimes on the big TV screen on the back it shows "Windows is not Genuine". He says this happens as he changes hardware. Will this happen to me?

PLEASE HELP! I'm panicking :??:

Intel HD4000 doesnt have any drivers, dont need to worry about it.
Nothing will happen to the OS, it will just register that there is new hardware and prompt you to get drivers for it.
You may have to re-configure display settings through Nvidia's tool, but it should stay generaly the same.

That happens when you change motherboards, or move the installation to a new system. Changing the graphics wont have that effect.
