Default New GPU installation preparation.

Its been a while since I changed from Nvidia to ATI. Soon my 5870 will be here and I just want to get your input on what i need to do to make sure I completely remove my current Nvidia drivers.

Back in the days there was a program I used that automatically looked for anything that had to do with nvidia or ati and u had a choice to remove it, however I don't remember the name.

Thanks.

1.Uninstall Nvidia drivers through Control Panel/add-remove programs
2.Boot into safe mode and run Driver Sweeper ^^^
3.Reboot and install ATi drivers.
