Installing new graphics card

Hi All
I am soon going to upgrade my Graphics card from an ATI radeon 9000 to a ATI sapphire X1650 Pro.
My PC is a P4 CPU 2Ghz running WinXP Pro.

Having read the instructions from the new graphics card kit, it says to uninstall the old card and fit the new one, then power up and to follow the prompts when the 'found new hardware' wizard appears, then install the CDROM to install the drivers.

Now, usually i thought you are asked to uninstall drivers for the old card first and then install the new driver, then fit the new hardware and it will then install from the wizard.

Is this correct? or will there be problems leaving the old drivers in place.

Well basically its this:

Being as its the same card, you shouldn't really have to change any drivers but you can also download the latest driver click here

Uninstall the previous driver use ccleaner to get rid of the leftovers reboot comp and then update the latest driver from there.

Good Luck.
