    In order to test out a PCI-E video card on a different PC, do you need to have the drivers installed first? I would prefer not to have to install the drivers.

    My video card failed in my system the other day and I want to make sure it's the video card and not the mobo.

    Thanks.

    You will get a picture without the drivers.

    You just need to install drivers for full functionality.
