I have a Gigabyte motherboard with a Intel 2 quad Q8300 cpu & do I need to delete drivers before I install a new Radeon HD 6870 graffics card ? I'm also going to upgrade the PSU to a Seasonic 520 Watt modular unit.Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

No, you should not delete the drivers for your on-board graphics (ever). Just install the graphics card, boot up your system with the monitor attached to the card. Windows will boot using basic VGA drivers. Go to AMD.com, download and install the latest drivers for your system. Reboot once more and you should be good to go.
