Hello,

I recently purchased an ATI Radeon X800GTO video card to replace an old Nvidia GeForce. When installing a new card, what steps should I take in order to install it correctly? Do I have to uninstall all of the software and drivers from the old card?

Yes, Uninstall the previous nvidia drivers then download a program called driver cleaner http://www.drivercleaner.net/ and get rid of any nvidia files..

Next turn off your pc and install the new video card, boot it back up and make shure you have the latest version of directx then install the new video card drivers..
