I'm going from a rx580 to a rx5600xt. Do I need to delete the drivers before I remove my rx580?

Rx580 is msi

Rx5600xt is Saphire

Lewis-H wroteNvidia to nvidia (as you're doing) or amd to amd - you dont need to remove drivers at all - swap cards & just install the latest ones.

Not entirely accurate. Usually these days it is fine, but it's always safest to just run DDU before changing GPU and then install the latest drivers anyway.
