Help...with updating Video Drivers

  1. Hi all....when I update my Forceware Video Drivers from Nvidea should I be physically going into my system Folder and removing the older Driver versions prior to installing the new one?

    I haven't done that yet and have updated to newer Beta Drivers a couple of times now.
    By deleting the older versions I take it that this would not allow me to "Roll Back" to previous versions?

    Also, does thier tend to be "conflicts" by not deleting the older Drivers?

    Thanks for any responses...

    I don't see why old drivers should be uninstalled first. Some others uninstall them, I don't know why.
