    Video card install

    I'll be soon installing a Gainward Geforce 4 Ti 4200. I've already downloaded the Nvidia 30.82 drivers. After doing the usual uninstall of old drivers and replacing the video card, should I install the CD software first and then update the drivers, or can I directly install the 30.82 drivers after replacing the card? In other words, will the CD install something needed that the drivers alone wouldn't?

    Re: Video card install

    You shouldn't have any problems installing the latest drivers. Since it's a Gainward card you may want to see if they have their own revision of the reference driver set, which could enable additional features - in either case, the drivers from the manufacturer's website are those that I use in every case except for Soundblaster cards, which require a CD - and tell you so.
