    I was having some video problem so decided that I would get a different video card.

    The desk-top computer that I have came with an integrated video card so I added a better one because I like to watch YouTube video's.

    I am not a game player...

    So, the video card that is running now is a NVidia GeForce GT 610.

    I bought a EVGA GeForce 710.



    The question is, what do I need to do to change-out the cards? Do I have to uninstall the GT 610 or just pull it out and install the 710???



    Thank you...,

    Jerry

    Just for clarification purposes, integrated video usually means it's built into the motherboard and not a discrete card. Even though they're both Nvidia cards, I'd still recommend uninstalling the drivers for the GT 610, powering down the PC, removing it and replacing with the 710, powering up, and then installing the latest drivers.
