    Switching from one Nvidia card to another. Reinstall current drivers?

    Question guys. Normal whenever I upgrade a GPU is when I actually do a reformat. This time around it's not the case and I'm just swapping cards. Do I need to uninstall/reinstall drivers for the new card even though both cards are Nvidia? Or would it automatically detect the card and be super duper?

    Hey guys. Been running with a 3770 for the past couple years and I was planning on doing a Monitor and GPU upgrade in the next couple of weeks to 2k. Was thinking though, with jumping up to a higher resolution how much will that impact my CPU? Do I need to upgrade that as well? Thank you.
