There are various registry cleaning programs. I have systemsuite 3.0, and it works pretty well. Any time I make any major changes, I run through and clean out the registry. It really doesn't take that long, and it does make a difference. It's also nice to get that old crap out. Sometimes you have to run the cleaner a few times, but it will remove those old entries.

I need to say STOP!!!

When you install your new drivers, the old associations will be severed... I would not be concerning with toying in the registry if it isn't needed. This is contrary to some beliefs, but this is merely factual... if you REALLY need the registry clean, keep a good image with Norton Ghost (using a VGA driver/adapter), and reimage the machine. You may end up making a mistake that will cause you to reinstall anyway.

At least this is how I do it and I've gone through numerous video cards in the past 3 months.
