    I have an asus geforce 3 64 mg ddr memory card.

    I'm using the 45.23 drivers Whick seem to be pretty good.


    I bought a Asus 5600 256 ddr 400 card.


    What is the best to install the new card, using the same drivers.

    Do i have to install the disk that comes with the package, or can i just uninstall the old card and install the nw one?

    Could you give me a step by step please.

    Also do you think these drivers will work well with the card?

    Thanks for any help

    Uninstall the current drivers then go to device manager and remove the card, shut down, install the new card, boot up let windows find the new hardware and install the drivers, you don't need to install anything from the cd if you don't want to

    The drivers detect which card you have and install the appropriate files, so your current driver set would not be correct for the new card

    What he said. Though if I were you I would install the Smart Doctor utility if you haven't already.
