    I'm looking at doing a clean Vista install as my computer is in need of a bit of a clean up. My question is, what will I have to do after this, in terms of drivers or anything else of this nature? I expect to have to upgrade my video card drivers, but other that is there anything else i have to look out for, or should everything be fine apart from the video card??

    any drivers that you installed after you originally installed vista will need to be reinstalled. sound card, monitor, peripherals, etc etc.

    So the computer will work, its just a matter of installing new video card, sound card drivers and stuff like that, is that correct??

    yeah, along with all your programs and data and everything else.

    be sure to back up *everything*.

    If you've purchased a Vista Upgrade DVD, you'll have to install Vista twice in order to get a clean install.
