I was wondering whether it's necessary to re-install graphic drivers when switching from an older video card to a newer video card, considering my drivers are already the latest version.
I'm switching from Nvidia 8600GT to Nvidia GTX 560.
It's true that I could easily re-install the drivers in a matter of minutes and not need to ask this question, but I'm rather curious how it is.
When installing the drivers, do they detect the current card and install some specific set of files required for that card? In that case, a re-install would be necessary. Otherwise, if all files are always installed, a re-install wouldn't be needed at all, I guess. Where's the truth?
