Been borrowing a 660 superclocked for the past few days or so while my 670 ftw is being RMA'd. Installed the 660 sc with a fresh install of Windows, drivers, etc. I get my 670 back tomorrow and I'm wondering, can I just swap the cards without messing with drivers or anything of the sort?

Or is there a more proper way to do it?

Using 320.49 whql drivers.

I like Caravans more.

should be able to just pop the 670 back in and go

it should be fine to just swap, but it probably wouldnt hurt to just reinstall your video card drivers.

Pull it out, pop in the new one, that's it. They use the same driver.

You give it thirty two hundred bucks, then you gotta turn your back on it.

how I do it:

uninstall drivers
remove old card
insert new card
reinstall drivers
