Smile Installing new GPU, please advise!

Hey guys, so I literally just purchased a new graphics card an Nvidia GTX760 DirectCU II OC 2GB to replace my old one (AMD HD7770), Obviously my budget is tight so I can't go ahead and spend 200+ on a card!

Anyway, I was curious is it easy to replace a GPU, I have already replaced my PSU and installed a new hard drive so I am guessing it isn't too hard? Would I have to install all the new cards drivers before I took out my old one? Input and tips from you guys would be much appreciated, I am still a bit of a noob when it comes to PC! Thanks for you time.

Also I need to update my CPU at some point, I have a feeling this card may finally bottleneck my FX-4100 haha

Just go ahed and download the drivers for your new card (don't install the) then you want to remove the drivers to the amd card,

Then go ahed and turn off your pc unplug it and ground yourself.
Then just install the card and install the drivers you download earlier
