    Hello,

    I am changing my GPU soon from Nvidia Quadro K2000 to VGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING, 11G-P4-6696-KR, 11GB GDDR5X

    I have read somewhere her that I should uninstall completely the old drives with some program before installing new ones.

    Please comment on that.

    just run the nvidia uninstaller in the programs and features list... remove all the nvidia listing there. Shut down, install new card, then download the latest driver, run the driver installer, and make sure to select "clean install" when it gives the list (it's a check box)... i'd advise though to de-select geforce experience in the list however.

    Thanks! Will do. I was thinking about deselecting Geforce Experience also.

    What bad does it exactly do if you do not mind asking.

    a lot of people have no use of geforce experience's features... however a lot of people don't like the fact that in order to use the feature, requires logging in and screwing around.

    it's best to google what geforce experience can offer.

    Yes, I am in the group that does not like logging in in order to do anything.
    New driver install is all I need.
    Thank you Judas!
