Default New video drivers

Alright, So I just downloaded the new Nvidia drivers and it says to uninstall any current nvidia drivers. Question: If I uninstall the drivers, will the video card still work? Also, what happens if I install the new drivers without uninstalling the old? Bottom line: Is it safe to uninstall the old drivers? What if something happens during installation and I can't install the new ones?

dude....stop and think about it for a second......what happens when you freshly install windows..........theres no drivers there....so using that little bit of info that pretty much tells you whether or not a card works without drivers.

If it wasn't safe to uninstall old drivers then why would they tell you to do so
