I’m going from a GTX 1060 3 GB to an RTX 2060. Do I need to reinstall my drivers before doing the swap? I’m running driver version 436.02. Thanks!

CPU: Intel i7 7700K
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z270XP SLI
Windows Version: 1809 64 Bit

There's a debate to either side really.

In many cases, it should run perfectly fine, and when you install Geforce with the latest GPU, it should identify which drivers are needed.

Best practice is just to wipe and clean install anyway to prevent any potential problem. But I'd suspect you'd be fine.
