Q: Swapping from old 8800 GTS to new GTX 480
 
Sorry for the dumb question, but do I need to reinstall the nvidia drivers? Or will it automatically detect the new card and use the appropriate driver from the pack? (I am on latest drivers already).

Is there anything non-obvious I should know regards swapping the cards over?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I must get around to editing my profile! half of it is wrong, I notice

I would do a simple uninstall/reinstall - other than that you should be good to go. Enjoy the card! :)

You will need to re-install the drivers. I have tried it in the past and it doesn't work, just swapping out the cards.
