Process of adding new GPU? Tags: Graphics Cards Radeon Graphics Last response: December 6, 2012 12:27 PM in Graphics & Displays Share silverzx December 6, 2012 11:52:11 AM Hi guys, so following my previous post I'm upgrading my XFX ATI Radeon HD 4890 1024MB GDDR5 to a XFX ATI Radeon 7850 HD 2GB GDDR5 'Core Edition'. Is it as simple as: 1) Uninstall current driver & catalyst control centre for my 4X series 2) Turn off PC, remove old GPU, install new GPU 3) Turn on PC, install drivers for new GPU If someone can just confirm this please it would be much appreciated!

Just note that you don't need to boot into safemode to remove the drivers. In actuality, booting into safemode will cause the (un)install to fail. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
