the 1st thing to do is uninstall the old v card drivers then shut down and swap them out
Not if you are using the same maker. If you are going from nvidia to nvidia you don't need to remove any drivers especially if you already had updated drivers for your previous card to begin with.

At that point it should simply be pop in and it's recognized...atleast that's how its been in my experience.
