Grafic card change

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,finally I took the plunge and orderd a new EVGA GTX 560 SuperClocked as an replacement for my solid working GTX 260. But there´s one thing I´m not really sure about: I´ve currently the 280.26 drivers installed and they´re working fine so far. How do I have to make the change? Is it just the old card out and the new one in or do I have to delete the drivers before and install them with the new one in?

Something like this:Use the "perform clean installation" option in the driver installer (you'll need to pick Custom / Advanced intallation type)Restore your Inspector profile for FSXDelete all the existing video card entries in your FSX.cfg (the ones that look like[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480.0]Mode=1920x1080x32Anisotropic=1)Run FSX

So you say that I should reinstall the drivers with the new card in?! Should the old ones be deleted prior to this?.

Yes, install the card, then the drivers (clean install) then inspector, then FSX.cfg
Should the old ones be deleted prior to this?
No, that's what the clean installation is for

So i throw the new card in and install the 285 drivers via the "clean Install" option, restore the inspector settings and the cfg and I´m good to go.

If you like the 280 drivers and they support your new card, there is no reason togo to the 285 drivers..

They´re working great so far. So I´ll just throw in the new card and see what´s happening.

You will have to restore your Inspector settings after install!
Will save my current setting and releoad it afterwards. That should be all I have to do.

It's better to start a new profile from scratch. Changing the driver can change the profile options.I mean come on, it takes 30 seconds anyway :)
