Forsa Geforce 7900GT Video Card Review

Bosco    -   September 8, 2006


Installation

Installation of a videocard is pretty straightforward, and this 7900GT is no exception. Simply shut down your computer, remove the side panel, remove the retention screw from your old card, pull out the previous card, and plug the new one into the slot. Remember that this card uses an auxiliary power connector. If your Power Supply does not have the proper connector to plug into the card, Forsa has provided an adaptor that you can use that will use two Molex plugs instead. Once you get the card installed and have your computer all buttoned up, simply boot it up, uninstall your old videocard drivers, and install the new ones off the disc. In my case, I chose to go to the Nvidia website and get a copy of their latest driver revision. Now I was ready to get onto the REAL testing of this baby.
