How to Change Nvidia GT545 to AMD Radeon RX 550?

In some days I will change my “unsupported” nvidia GT545 card to an AMD Radeon RX 550.

Can you explain me the steps that I have to do?

Thank you very much

Simply switch to the free driver before switching the GPU, and you should be good.


This solution sounds so cool and easy, @maycne.sonahoz, :upside_down_face:

thank you very much for your support. When I get the new AMD Card, i will do your solution.
