Default Gpu Drivers

Hello HWC

I had a gtx 460 a while ago and I changed it out for a XFX 6950.
I uninstalled all nvidia programs and drivers that I could see in the uninstall menu.
I saw a couple of files that had Nvidia in them.

Will the left over drivers affect my Radeon cards performance ?

Thank you

It's possible.

AFAIK most folks use ccleaner to remove all the old drivers.

IIRC somewhere along the way Skymtl said Driver Cleaner was the best... DC is anyway what I have been using for sometime with great results.

Hmm, never had any issues with driver sweeper. Used to use driver cleaner as well. No problems with it either.
