To get started with the configuration you just have to pop in the CD and the auto start box will pop up. Click run on the auto start box and it brings up the ECS VGA Card Installer program. The menu has several options, including the profile button which brings you to nVidia's website, a Utility button which gives you options to install several programs and assisted drivers for different chipsets, an Information button which tells you your OS and video card model, a Manual button which gives you an electronic version of the manual included with the card, and the DirectX and Driver buttons which install what is needed to power the ECS 8800 GT.
To install the card's drivers, click on the button labeled "Driver Install" and the nVidia Display Driver will start. Click "Next" and the installation is all automatic. When the installation is complete, it will prompt you to restart your system. I recommend you do this before you do anything else.
When the computer comes back up, go back into the VGA Card Installer and click the "DirectX" button. This will bring up the DirectX installer and install the software on your system. Again, this is completly automatic and when it is done click the "Finish" button to finalize the installation.
Now that we have everything configured, we can move on to the testing to see how the ECS 8800 GT performs.
