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.
