Default Driver Question

If I change the card in my machine from a 8800GTS to a 8800GT do i need to
reinstall the drivers?

I know it sounds a stupid question, but my brain is numb from sorting out
some other problems.

Thanks

It would be a wise thing to do (uninstall and then reinstall the driver)
whenever you install another videocard in your system. It take just a couple
of extra minutes and can save you a lot of grief.

Yeah, you have to change drivers, 8800gt (g92) uses 169 series driver
whilst the old 8800GTS (g80) uses 163 which aren't compatible
