New Card

I've just bought a new Graphics Card.

My X800GTO seems to be the root of my problems.

I have bought an X1950 Pro.

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showp...odid=GX-065-HT


I think I should be very happy with it. I am not a hardcore heavy gamer so I see no reason why this shouldn't last me a good 2 years.

Thanks to Pitch for suggesting it.

Ok, I'm feeling noobish here. I've never actually changed a graphics card without it being part of a new computer.

So, could you guys help me out? I just want to make sure I should be fine uninstalling my current Ati Drivers, swapping the cards, and installing the new drivers.

I'm not entirely keen on the idea of using Driver Cleaner and I really do not want to do any XP install crap.
I've got a lot of stuff on my PC at the moment I simply can not lose. I have it backed up of course but, you know....I'd prefer to avoid doing repair installs or re-installs etc.

I was given the impression it can be too harsh?

It only deletes specific driver files as far as I know, I've never had issue with it.

Just make sure you uninstall the drivers from add/remove, reboot in safe mode, run driver cleaner for your card, reboot in normal mode and install the new drivers.

I do beleive it is now installed and running smoothly. Had a few issues installing drivers but all is fine.
And my random reboots have......vanished. Looks like my old card was the issue all along.

I cannot wait to load up some games and play with some eye candy turned on for once!
