Do I need to remove my previous driver before updating it to the new one?

I basically never do.

But I have NVidia Experience and I think that might be taking care of it for me.

All last times I updated the drivers for my AMD cards, I just chose to install without removing the older drivers first.
IMO, don't use programs like Driver Sweeper unless you experience issues.

- Uninstall Catalyst via Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.
- Choose Express Uninstall.

Now, you can go ahead and install the newest version of Catalyst. Me, I like to boot up in Safe Mode first, then use a program like DriverSweeper to check for any remaining driver files and remove them.

When you're not changing the video card itself, it's fine to overwrite older drivers with newer ones, provided.
If you're changing the video card, but you're going from AMD to AMD or nVidia to nVidia, again it's fine to overwrite older drivers with newer ones.
If you're going from AMD to nVidia or from nVidia to AMD, then you do want to uninstall the existing drivers before installing the new card.

I know you only asked about the first scenario, but I figured I'd give you some extra information.
