what powersupply do you have? what operating system are you using? how much ram do you have? what processor do you have? what case do you have?

yeup, all you are going to do is download the drivers for your new graphics card first and put the .exe file on your desktop or anywhere in your computer that you can easily find it, then take the old graphics card out, put the new one in, install the drivers, restart your computer and you are all set.
