Solved Installing a different driver for Video Card?

Specs: Windows 7, AMD A6-3500 / 8GB
I'm planning on removing my Nvidia card to a different PC just for a day to use it on another place. But someone is going to use this computer. I have an AMD A8 apu and I would like to use it's video card temporarily but will still keep the Nvidia's drivers. Can I install the AMD Driver without uninstalling the Nvidia so that when I get back home I can just place my Nvidia card?

This PC will never be as fast as yours.

Personally, I would uninstall the nvidia drivers, shutdown, & then remove the card. Connect the monitor cable to the onboard port, boot up, then install the AMD drivers. When you're ready to install the nvidia card again, reverse the process. While you're at it, make sure you update the drivers to the latest available.
