View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade video card 7300GT to 9600GSO

Greetings, my first post, so please be gentle... :D

Anyway, I've been running 8.10 since late last year and have been using the proprietary nvidia drivers for my 7300GT. I've decided to upgrade my video card to an nvidia 9600GSO and was wondering if I needed to do anything in Ubuntu to upgrade (since I'm going from nvidia to nvidia, is it simply shove in the new card and power up?). I just upped my driver to 180 from 177 last night, if that makes any difference.

Thanks in advance for any help!

You should just be able to shove in the card and boot up :P
from what I know the nvidia drivers, detect the card everytime it boots up, so it should be fine
