So last night, I had the old card in while I plopped the new card in. Downloaded the proper driver for RTX 2070 and installed it.
All is well now.
Oddly though, the RTX 2070 somehow doesn’t want to show even basic details until driver is installed. How is one supposed to build a PC from scratch with this thing if you can’t even power on without an additional, support card.
RTX 2070 did not fix the problem I was having. Still stupid slow repainting things so now I suspect it is not video related...
