I don't think so, but just to be safe, I would. Use whatever means you used to install the drivers to uninstall them. If it was the Hardware Drivers menu (System > Admin) then just disable it by that means and turn off the machine. Then swap in the new card. Then put back the new driver, by your preferred means.
