Hello, this is probably a dumb question but here I go.

I have a working Hackintosh build. It has a ATI 5770 video card but, I would like to change to an Nvidia GTX 285 or Quadra 4000.
Can I just swap the cards and continue with 10.6.8?
Do I have to do a complete reinstall?
Lastly, can I just change out the drivers from the ATI to the Nvidia drivers?

Any input is appreciated and thanks in advanced.

Do I need those drivers if I am going to use the GTX 285 as well?

Driver package supports several different nVidia gfx cards, not just the quadro's. Don't know if GTX 285 is there specifically, but it can't hurt to install them anyway.

By the way does the name have a reason?

It's because at my age my hair should be turned/turning grey. Instead, it's turning loose.
