If you install new drivers over the old ones, parts of the old drivers can be left around and cause problems. You might get away with installing new over old without getting into trouble, but when things go wrong, it may not be the least bit obvious what is causing the problem. So uninstalling old drivers is always advisable to prevent problems like that occuring in the first place. Prevention is better than cure.
