  1. Hey all,
    I recently had to RMA an eVGA 7800GT N515 video card. Apparently it is being discontinued or they're out, so I am replacing it with an eVGA 7800GT N516 card. The drivers and rivatuner were already installed and running good when I had the N515 installed...will I have to make any changes to set up the N516, or will I be able to plug in and go?

    I'm pretty new to this, and had some help from a friend setting up rivatuner for the first card.

    Thanks,
    John

    All cards of the same type (like the 7800GT) use the same driver, so you don't have to upgrade. Still, it's a good idea to have the latest drivers installed all the time, it may help you prevent various problems with the latest games.
