Safe upgrading of graphics card
I was wondering if anyone could suggest a safe and effective way of upgrading one graphics card to another?
Is it worth regressing to the standard SVGA driver before swapping the cards. Will the old drivers be replaced or should I remove them manually first?
If possible do exactly as you suggested. You may be able to uninstall the vid drivers thru the add/remove programs (not always though).
You could also go into the 'system properties' - 'device manager' and delete the video card under the heading 'display'.
If the new driver is zipped up you could also unzip them (not installed ok) and have them ready for the new card.
Best of luck.

Well. Almost every card manual I have read instructs you to remove the old video drivers or choose a standard display. Then remove the old card, put in the new one turn power on and then install the new card drivers.!
