Okay so right now I have a Radeon card, and I will be getting a Nvidia card soon,and to uninstall the current AMD drives, I just have to delete it via Control Panel, Turn Off Computer, Put In New Card, Turn On Computer, and Install latest Nvidia drives from their site? No messing with the BIOS and that stuff?? Just want to be 100% safe... Don't want to screw up. Thanks for answering.

Exactly. Uninstall all the Radeon software and drivers. Then power down change the card and after starting windows install the new drivers.

Okay thanks for the help!

EDIT: Since were on this topic, mind anyone help me choose a card? Which should I consider more? The type of card or how much video memory it has?

Here are the cards I want to choose but don't know which one to chose.. I'm mostly going to play games like GTA 4, GTA 5 when it comes out, Skyrim, Just Cause 2, and other open world games. I want to play these games on Ultra. My specs are i5 2500k 3.3 GHz NOT overclocked and 8 GB of ram.

First one: GTX 570 1.2 GB

Second one: GTX 570 2 GB

OR should I just get the 7850 or 7870?

Thanks again for the help.
