I just took delivery of a 660 Ti to replace my trusty old 4870. I have a couple of questions for you fine, knowledgeable folks...
- As far as installation goes: I've never gone from ATi to nVidia... I've read that it's as simple as uninstalling the Catalyst stuff, swapping the cards, then installing the new nVidia drivers (I'm in Windows 7 Home 64 bit). Some people recommend running either Driver Sweeper or Driver Cleaner after the Catalyst uninstall. Is this necessary on a stable system, and if so, which should I use? Both? Also, the 660 Ti I ordered is the Gigabyte overclocked model... Is there a difference between the drivers from Gigabyte and the drivers straight from nVidia? Should I initially install the stuff from the disk that comes with the card, or just go straight to the latest from nVidia's website?
- I'm gonna run some benchmarks before and after the swap... Are there any games or benchmarks you folks would be interested in seeing?
