Hello,

Just purchased this card, and thinking about the install process. I currently have a stable system with my 1060 6GB w 388.13 drivers. I like to change only 1 aspect of the system at a time to minimize possible issues and help chase problems, if necessary.

Thoughts.... would it be better to upgrade the drivers first, and then ensure the system is stable with the new drivers,  before putting in the new card

or

install the new card first, while keeping the drivers at 388.13.

Hoping to heats others’ preferences & experiences.

Mike

I've never tried that, but then again, my card upgrades tended to be leaps across more than two generations of video cards.  Whenever I install a new card, I first remove all of the current video card drivers, shut down, install the new card, then install the drivers that came with the card.

I agree with Stans. I never install a new card with existing drivers. This is a personal choice and I'm sure others do it with existing drivers, but I like to start clean in case there is a problem. As you implied, this makes it much easier to chase problems.

After the install, I will generally update the drivers to the most current and see how things go at that point.

Good luck with the new card.

Agree, Think the 388.13 is not compatible driver for 1660TI oldest probaly 419.17
