To install the Foxconn 8600 GTS you'll need to make sure you have a motherboard that supports PCI-Express. If you already have a video card installed, you'll need to make sure that you remove all of the display drivers before you install the Foxconn 8600 GTS. Next, power down your computer, unplug the power cable to the power supply and open your case. Remove your current video card from the PCI-E slot and insert the Foxconn 8600 GTS. Insure that it is firmly in place and plug in a six-pin PCI-E power connector into the port on the 8600 GTS. Then plug in your monitor to one of the DVI out connectors on the video card. Last, close your case, plug in your power supply and boot up your computer. Once your computer is loaded up, insert the included driver CD and follow the on screen instructions to properly install the display drivers for the Foxconn 8600 GTS. Before you're all set, check the nVidia website for the newest drivers and download the newest drivers if they are available.
Foxconn included a driver CD for you to use once your 8600 GTS is correctly installed. Below, you can see some screen shots before the driver software is completely installed. After the software successfully installs, you'll have to restart your computer.
Now that everything is installed, let's take a look at the nVidia control panel. When you first open the control panel, you'll have four categories to choose from; 3D Settings, Display, Networking, and Video & Television. In the 3D Settings menu, you'll be able to adjust image settings and manage 3D profiles.
In the Display category, you'll be able to change how the picture looks on your monitor, resolution, and refresh rate to get the display to your optimal settings.
