hi what process do i need to use to remove Nvdia drivers and install New ATI drivers.

Do i need to run any driver cleaner progs or run in safe mode, just want a bit of advice from ppl who have done this process before and whats the best way to clean my system up.

I dont want performance issues with the two different drivers conflicting.

Thanks.

Uninstall and then running Drivercleaner did it for me. No conflicts going from my old 8800GTX to my new HD5870.

I un-install my ATi drivers in the control panel and then restart, run driver sweeper and then restart again and then install the new drivers.

no those programs are trash, they were good back in 2000-2002 but now they are more likely to just bork your pc

agreed,
I made a smooth tansition from Nvidia to ATI. Uninstall Nvidia drivers, reboot with new card, install new ATI drivers. No need for another program to mess around.
