I recently bought and recieved a geforce 6800 LE. My current card is a ati 9700 np. I'm looking around for a way to remove all the ati drivers and such, but I cant really find all that much. Also, do I need to do much else besides removing the drivers from ati? I know a clean install of windows would prolly be best but that isnt an option right now. I plan to in the future, but not right now. Anyway, is there a program or something that'll clean all the old card's stuff away? Thanks

Also, if you want to download a program that will work for future uninstalls, if/when you uninstall your current card. Works for both ATI and Nvidia cards
