To install the drivers, I checked ATI's website for the absolute latest drivers available and followed the onscreen instructions to successfully install the drivers and Catalyst Control Center (CCC). CCC is a great program that allows you to tweak almost every setting you can think of for your monitor and video card. Here I will show some screenshots of the tabs most commonly used.
Information Center: Here is where you can view your driver version as well as all of the software and hardware information. The sub-menu of display manager and display options allows users to configure their desktop environments to meet their needs.
Digital Panel: This tab has four sub-menus under it that include "Attributes," "AVIVO Color," "HDTV Support," and "LCD Overdrive." The user can view some of his monitor's information, set up HDTV settings, as well as AVIVO color settings.
3D: Here is where you'll be able to modify your performance versus quality settings, as well as your anti-aliasing settings among other settings.
AVIVO Video & ATI Overdrive: Here you can alter the basic color settings in theater mode. ATI Overdrive is an extremely easy-to-use overclocking utility that allows the user to overclock his card to a certain point. The only downside is that there are no controls for the fan speed on the video card.
Now let's get to testing this card!
