I'm planning on using the same drivers (84.43) with my 7900GTX as I was with my 7800gt. Should I uninstall the drivers first or just power down and plug in my new card? Also should I consider the new 84.56 driver? Thanks.

For a different model ( i.e. 7800 GT to 7900 GTX ) you'll have to reinstall the drivers. You don't need to uninstall. If you were upgrading to the same model from a different manufacturer you wouldn't have to change or reinstall drivers.

Thanks, I figured since the inf file had both the 7800 and 7900 listed I could just plug the new card in and it would be recognized...

You can just plug in the new card.

As long as your current drivers support the 7900GTX - I had 84.12 XG installed (awesome driver) with my 7800GTX, but when I put in my new card yesterday, I had to uninstall and upgrade to 84.37 XG because the 7900 was not recognised.
