when you go from a nividia gigabyte graphics card and switch to a asus graphics card.. what should i do exactly? 

do i uninstall my geforce driver program?

does asus have a program like geforce where it auto detects and auto updates etc like the geforce program does?

do i delete my geforce program before i take off my gefoce graphics card? can i put on my asus graphics card then install the asus program then delete the geforce program AFTER i finish installing and setting up the asus program ?


i am so lost..

I don't even know how to explain this: You are confused.

 

The core of your new graphics card is still made by nvidia. Get your drivers from geforce.com nothing has changed. 

oh so i can continue to use the geforce experience program? just swap out the graphics card turn the pc on open up my program and click update driver and let it find the driver like normal etc ?

i thought i would need to go to the asus website and download the driver from them

would i need to uninstall my current geforce experience program? or just go to the website after i put on the new card and all of it will change over automatically?

the clean install will fix that, I would recommend uninstalling geforce experience first just incase.

so should i change graphics cards then uninstall geforce? or can it be done either way?

i now with my setup on the tv the screen goes kinda side ways abit when the driver isnt installed so maybe i can download the new driver program file put it on the desktop then uninstall geforce turn the computer off swap graphics cards then turn it back on and open the program so that its in the middle of the screen so theres no problems getting to it?

lol with asus they are.. atleast i got a little booklet accompanied with stickers explaining just that with my rog strix gpu 

It is also good p.c. use so don't forget it 

always remove all programs that belong to a certain device before you swap it with another 
this can go as far as formatting whole hard drives with for instance cpu swaps.. just to be sure the new hardware works at 100%
