tonymcdonn the answer as Wizards_sleeve says is yes when you install just make sure you follow the instructions to delete your Nvidia driver and turn off your anti virus.

^^ Vista it seems does it for you, ie it wont let you install without uninstalling the old ones.

I do it the long way round - boot into safe mode, uninstall the old driver, reboot into safe mode, install the new driver, reboot. I've found the wizard a bit flaky before.

Incidentally, I just spoke to Nvidia about this driver release for a piece I'm writing and apparently it now delivers equivalent performance in single-card mode as XP and it's a 42 per cent improvement on the former driver in SLI under Vista. They're working on getting that better.
