So, the day has finally come. I have finally replaced my 1gb AMD card for a 4gb Nvidia card. With that, my computer goes from being a BBC Jr, to being just shy of a PS4.
So, my question is this. Do I uninstall the AMD drivers before I install the Nvidia card, or after?

Just plug the new card in, install the drivers and then uninstall the AMD drivers. I've been doing this for years and never had a problem.
The cleaner way to do it is to uninstall AMD, reboot, install VGA, install GPU and then install Nvidia drivers. The last time I had to do this was when I upgraded from one ATI to another ATI card back when their driver software was prone to messing things up.

If you want to fully ensure no issues (probably)
Download DDU, reboot to safe mode, do an uninstall of the AMD drivers (click the Clean and Power Down option), then install the new GPU, boot to Windows and install the new drivers.
