GPU Migration across different OS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Right so I'm buying a fairly cheap GTX 770 to replace my GTX 650 (and i5-4670k to replace my i5-750).,however its been running inside an Ubuntu system and I can't seem to find an answer but would that require a driver change when I move it into my system which runs Windows 10? Would Windows even be able to recognise the device? Is the process different from a regular driver install. Thanks

Yes it will.  Just like Linux, it will install a default driver to make it work.  Once you are on the desktop you can install the Nvidia drivers from the net.

To get drivers in windows 10, download GeForce Experience. That's more convenient, or you can go to nVidia's website to find the drivers.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Yeah, or just go to the website and download with no sign in at all.

pretty sure if you use the site, it tries to auto download geforce experience anyway, but i could be mistaken.

I already had GeForce Experience when I first got my GTX 650 so I made an account and everything only to manually install an older driver as a game I adore (Dark Souls) wouldn't function correctly with the mods I had due to the newer drivers, so I currently have a driver from July 2015 on it. Either way thanks guys.
