I'm switching from an Nvidia to AMD video card do I need to do anything within Linux mint before installing the card

Just switch to Nouveau driver in your driver Manager and you should be good to go.

Check your Mesa version in your terminal

inxi -G

Mint doesn't ship the latest, GoL has a good wiki page on how to build it yourself or maybe there's a PPA around...

And if your a lucky owner of one of the latest 5700XT or 5700, You should maybe install the latest kernel.
