should you download your driver before or after you install a gpu?

Recommended Posts

Doesn't really matter

Whatever OS you use should have a basic display adapter that it will use before you or it finds and installs official ones

it does matter but only if you are going to OC your GPU otherwise it doesn't. my uncle works with computers and he told me this and as more proof I went from an AMD GPU to a NVidia without doing any DDU and mine is working just fine right now

some programs will conflict with each other when you try to OC your GPU if you don't DDU the old ones first. go thru some of the threads on here I bet the moderators in here will confirm what I am saying with people saying that X GPU is having problems and a lot of those were solved by DDUing the old driver and installing the new one.

oh I am just going to let this die right here and now otherwise we both will be gone from this forum, you because you will quit and then me because you will complain about me so no I am not going to go down this rabbit hole and prove to everyone here how you are the kind of person who thinks that someone giving someone correct info is mansplaining because there is no such word.

 

if you want to continue this though PM me.
