I'm pulling out my quadro FX4800 and replacing it with a gtx 680. I'm thinking its pretty straight forward, pull out the old, install the new, boot and use the install cd, go online and download the latest driver. Is there anything that will trip me up?

I don't know what pCI express is or if that matters for my MB.

This one has 2 slots for a power supply so I guess I connect them both. Anything else?

Thank you
