Drivers should be the same. Which Nvidia driver version are you currently running?

Also, are both GPUs the same vendor/brand?

Should be good to go.

Do you use GPU OC software (MSI Afterburner or Auros Engine)?

Then you should be all set (should just have to plug in the new GPU and Windows will autodetect).

If you do happen to run into any issues/glitches, then do uninstall the drivers and then custom install it again using clean installation.

Drivers vary slightly, but will run the 1070 Ti on 1060 drivers. For game performance manually update it if windows doesn’t automatically.

I did pretty much the same as you 2 weeks ago; swapped my 1060 for a 1070 TI. At first I didn't re-install the drivers and then I ran into problems. I tried uninstalling everything Nvidia (except GeForce Experience) and then I did a clean install of everything. All problems were gone. You decide...
