No use DDU right from the start, as for how to use, its easy just boot into safe mode and run DDU it will do everything automatically.

Just bought an EVGA 1080 SC to replace my r9 380x. Just wondering if installing the new drivers is as simle as just using control panel to uninstal AMD, then turning off and plugging out the pc, replacing the card and then booting up normally and then installing Nvidia drivers. Have seen some tutorials where they all use drive cleeners, is this neccesary?

DDU in safe mode and then you can install nVidia drivers fresh new.

I usually ddu twice to be honest when it comes to amd drivers, yes i had instances when i had to do it twice. My recommendation is as the others said, for just 5-7 minutes max of effort it takes to use ddu its not worth the hassle such conflicts could bring, use ddu.

If it was going from nvidia to nvidia you likely could get away with simply installing the new driver but if its going from AMD to nvidia or vise versa then you will want to properly uninstall the driver using DDU first.
