I have always deleted the old drivers first using the catalyst install manager then reinstalled the new ones. that has always worked for me .
Wishmaster , cccleaner and driver sweeper in safe mode will work just fine

Or someone have a better suggestion
I would probably just uninstall the ATI ones trough device manager, uninstall the Cat package through Programs and features, install the new card and drivers..... But I'm sure someone has some elaborate uninstall procedures that they swear by.

Thats pretty much what I was planning to do.

Ive upgraded cards in that manner before, and never had a issue, although its just been an upgrade of same brand.
I just wasnt sure if Changing from ATI->Nvidia may be a bit different issue.

I don't think so, but ever since 3DFX was bought out by Nvidia years back I've always been with ATI.

Good luck.

BTW I'm in the process of installing Portal 2 now

Well guys , I think i licked the issue

I went and uninstalled the drivers and rebooted then used driversweeper then reboot

After all the nonsense i went on to install 11.4 here is what i got
Diamond Hd 6870 none Oc'ed and then the second one clocks bumped up to 975/1200

interesting from a comparison point of view if you look at older cards to new cards and what we gain and lose.

also tesselation disabled...tbh i don't think the 4870 can do it i'll see if i can turn it on later

whenever I want to completely eradicate my ATI drivers, I use this guide:
TweakGuides.com - ATI Catalyst Tweak Guide

'bout halfway down the page, it tells you how to scrub everything out..


- it's an excellent guide to the ATI settings as well..

That guide is old and hasn't been updated since June 2009 (Cat 9.4) - We're up to 11.4 now. Anyways the guy doesn't have a recent ATI card anymore.....

Important: This guide does not contain details on all the features in the latest Catalysts as I do not have recent ATI hardware to test the Catalysts. Therefore significant portions of this guide may be outdated or incorrect until I am able to rectify this at some point in the future.
Here's AMD recommended procedures for removal and install.....

Thought Id run this benchmark on my 4890 as a comparison.


1280x1024 (Tesselation OFF)

1920x1080 (Tesselation OFF)

Not too bad, but it starts to really choke w/AA and Im guess Teselation would choke it as well, if it was capable.
