Yes, use Driver Cleaner to clear out the old nVidia driver fragments. Here's a link <A HREF="http://www.driverheaven.net/" target="_new">http://www.driverheaven.net/</A>

Far Cry should be an execelent test

Definitely download the real-time High Dynamic Range demo at http://www.daionet.gr.jp/~masa/rthdribl/
This is such a cool demo... wish I could use it as a screensaver.
 
Take a look at the Catalyst thread at the top of the page, it has a bunch of demos and benchmarks that should give you an idea of performance and features; and yes the rthdribl demo is SchweEet! Main reason why I included it in the comparison, can really bring any card to it's knees.

Also check out ATI's demos too;

You can also try the CallOfDuty demo (allows you to use the OpenGL pixel shader effects too).

There's also the new <A HREF="http://www.painkillergame.com/" target="_new">PainKiller Demo</A>, and a few others.
