Default The Best Way To Install My New GTX 970?

Greetings friends! In the spirit of splurging for Christmas and black friday deals, I went and purchased an EVGA GTX 970 SC! I'm super duper excited, as I'm upgrading from a GTX 660!

However, I've been hearing so murmurs about the card being finicky to install! I already have the NVIDIA Game Ready drivers installed (hence my GTX 660) and according to the website they should work, but I was just wondering if it was ok to just pop it in and let it do it's thing, or if I should take any major precautions when doing this! (I've heard DDU can be a good thing?)

I've done this a lot before, but I just want advice from more of you guys! Thanks bunches!

Just pop it on in. Your computer will recognize it and since the drivers are the same across all gpu's you will be good to go. Nvidia is fantastic with driver support and ensuring painless movement from card to card.
