Just bought the above card but it came with Chinese instructions & software ! Lol
Can anyone supply me with the correct Nvidia install instuctions & driver links for using with a Vista 32 bit operating system.
Do I de-install old video drivers first, install new drivers then hardware or what ?

You should be able to get English instructions/updates etc from the NVidia website.

OK, the original video card in a main board (onboard) type, therefore would it be correct to uninstall the drivers first, then I would need to disable it ? so I can then install the new (stand alone) card & then it's correct software ?
I have managed to get the software from the Nvidia site, but as the cards are made by all different manufacturers is the software the same ?
or do I need to install the chineses software somehow ?

So in fact you do not have a current Graphics card. Just fit your new card, then install the software - it does not matter who made your card as long as you have the software from Nvidia's site. You do not need to install any Chinese stuff.
