New Videocard install sequence

I'm fairly sure I know how to install my new video card, but am a little leery of having driver conflicts afterwords from an incomplete uninstall of the old card.
Can any one post a step by step process for me?
If it matters : Present card - Ati Radeon 64 DDR
New Card - Ati Radeon 8500 128 M AIW
Windows XP
Thanks in advance.

1) Goto Add/Remove Program from Control Panel
2) Uninstall the ATI driver, if there any
3) Replace old video card with new one
4) XP should automatically find and install the proper driver for the ATI Radeon 8500.
5) Download latest drivers from ATI and install

this should be self-evident, but just in case...

add "turn off computer" after step 2 and "plug monitor cable into new video card" after step 3.

Thanks all ! I was sure I knew what to do, I just didn't want to have to go mucking around in the registry, deleting strings etc.
