I'm going to buy AMD Radeon 6870 to replace my old nVidia 8800 GT. Which steps should I follow while replacing the graphics card? Do I need to reinstall Windows?
- ASUS M2N32-SLi Deluxe
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ @ 3.2 GHz
- 2 GB RAM
- nVidia GeForce 8800 GT
- Windows 7 32-bit
I know my processor is old and slow, but I will replace other parts in the future. There probably won't be any huge bottlenecks. Also, is AMD Radeon 6870 compatible with my current build?
Basically, I urgently need to replace my graphics card, since it kinda broke (artefacts appearing all over the screen, even in BIOS).
