Hi everyone, first time posting. I'm making a jump from a 32MB Geforce2 GTS to a Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro (I don't upgrade often), and I hear there're driver issues switching from nVidia to ATI cards. What exactly is the process going to be, do I uninstall the nvidia drivers first then swap cards, uninstall the drivers after I swap, or does it even matter? I also hear that I need some app like Detonator Destroyer or something to "exorcise" the remaining nVidia remnants, where's that fit in? Thanks.
Mmmm, looking forward to this, it's been about three years.
Detonator destroyer may only be for Win9X/ME. Use Detonator destroyer after the regular uninstall of the nvidia drivers.
There's a new utility which can clean up both ATI and nVidia files. I think it's called Driver Cleaner.
Whenever I change video cards, I prefer to do clean installs (uninstall then reinstall) of chipset drivers, video drivers, and DirectX. You'll need DirectX Eradicator (<A HREF="http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=626" target="_new">try here</A>) for the last.
Clean install of all three just makes the transition smoother and more reliable (in my opinion).
