    On the Hercules website it states that the old drivers should be uninstalled first before installing the new ones. Last time I did this it messed my computer up big time. :mad:

    Is it really necessary to uninstall first or can I just install over the old drivers?

    ATI suggests the same thing. I have installed the 3.5's over the top without any problems, however.

    I've started uninstalling the old drivers since I found out about Driver Cleaner. No problems here.
