If you don't have Nvidia card in your system anymore, these libraries are 
definitely unneeded. I would recommend to find and remove them. You may try
to use something like this from the terminal:

cd /usr/lib 
grep -l nvidia

After seeing them, rm them manually, or if all looks well and only expected
names like libGL etc. are there, let the system do it for you:

grep -l nvidia | xargs rm

Then cd /usr/lib32 and repeat the operation.

With regards, Pavel
