    installing new GPU tomorrow


    hello, this might be a very stupid question but i'm not certain how i should handle this.

    i ordered a new gpu today (nVidia gtx 750Ti), but right now i have an ATI GPU, and my question is: how do i replace my GPU, i have worked on computers before so i know how to do that but im not sure if there is going to be a conflict with the drivers or something, should i take out my current gpu and just plug in the new one and install the nVidia driver? or should i first uninstall the current driver? or something else?

    sorry if my question is unclear but english is not my native language.

    thanks in advance, Dylan

    I can simply insert the new card and it`ll be recognized.

    Just to be safe, I would run DDU graphics uninstaller before shutting down and replacing the card.
