I am going to upgrade my evga 8500 gt to the 8800 gts. I am currently using the 177 ver. from the hardware driver interface What drivers should I use for my new 8800 gts card? Eny or the restricted drivers from the hardware interface.

Just download the 180.22 drivers from Nvidia. Just remove the old drivers first:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove nvidia*

Ok i got the 180.22 drivers install and everything is working fine. When i get the new card in can i just plugin the new card and boot up? Or do i have to do some configuring to get my x server up.
