By chance do you have automatic updating enabled in your administrative services?
If its enabled after removing old drivers and rebooting XP detects new hardware (GF card) and connects to Windows update and installs the driver.

I disabled this service and when i comeback from rebooting after a driver deletion the only drivers that are installed are the default VGA drivers and plug n play monitor drivers( leaving this in manual is ok but uses memory in its idle state)

If ya dont want to disable this service, and are using a broadband connection thats always on, just unplug the modem before ya reboot, auto update will not be able to connect, forcing the install of the default VGA drivers, then install the drivers of your choice reboot, then plug your modem back in.
