    Keep your old graphics card. If you need to reinstall, put it back in first.

    May I confirm are you sure? I think next time I need reinstall OSX is Snow Leopard come.

    Also I make a fool to me, I had been back up the OSX to Ext. HD, so I just clone it back.

    So I think 285 I will get it after snow leopard can use it without driver.

    Sneo already has gt200 drivers, so must work fine.

    I would assume snow leopard has the drivers built in...otherwise, as has been said, do a clone like a carbon copy clone to a disc image, and/or clone it to another drive as a spare and swap that in if anything goes funky.
