New Graphics Card. Do I Reinstall the Rift?

RedRizla

I am about to get a new Graphics card and I'm not sure if I will need to reinstall the Rift. I just wondering, if I'll need to reinstall the Oculus Rift from scratch, or just plug it back into the new Graphics card once I have installed the card?

Does anyone know what I need to uninstal, if I do need to uninstall? Cheers!

No need to re install, i just put a new graphics card in my rig without any problems.

I ran into a problem just updating my Nvidia drivers the other day. PC kept crashing mid way through driver install despite having checked the perform clean install option.

Strangely enough, once I uninstalled my Oculus runtime, device drivers, etc, I could only then complete the install of my updated video drivers.

After which I reinstalled everything for the Oculus.

Same here, but I went from one Nvidia GTX 6xx card to another.

Same here. Never had problems with that. However I would recommend that you fully uninstall your previous graphics card drivers before the swap IF you happen to switch between GPU makers. (from AMD to nvidia or something like that)
