What should I delete from the AMD files since I'm gonna get an Nvidia card this time. Here are some pictures. I'm using DriveSweeper.

There are more pictures in this album.

OR do I have to remove everything in here? Or can I can just take out my old card and put in my new card, and install the drivers from Nvidia and it will overwrite my AMD files?

Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions, I'd rather be safe than sorry..

Don't delete, Uninstall the AMD driver is the best way then shut down. that will get rid of registry entries and files.

Remove the old video card, install the new card, then the latest drivers from http://www.nvidia.com drivers tab

Where do I uninstall the AMD driver?

Is this it?

Go to "ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS" or "PROGRAM MANAGER" and select "AMD Catalyst Install Manager" and follow directions to remove all AMD software.

Just to add detail. In XP as dpunisher says Control panel, add remove programs and don't forget if there is a display driver for the old card to remove it too.

Very similar for Vista / Windows 7
Control panel, then go to
Programs and Features to uninstall drivers and programs.
Uninstall the AMD (ATI) video driver and Catalyst stuff.

Good Luck
