Closer Look:

To properly install the drivers and programs, insert the included CD into your optical drive. The menu that pops up right when you insert the disc features the woman on the box of the card as well as six different options. You can install DirectX 9, the display driver, Yahoo! Companion toolbar, browse the CD, view the readme file, or exit the disc with these buttons. For me, the first step is to install the display drivers first. Be sure you check ATI's website for the latest display drivers so that you have the latest technology installed for your card. The "Readme" button opens up a Notebook .txt file with an abundance of information about how to install the card and get it working properly. The Yahoo! Companion Toolbar installs extremely quickly and just pops up a message saying "Yahoo! Toolbar install OK!!" and it's as simple as that. By browsing the CD, you'll see the different folders that house the information that is located on the CD.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now let's install the display driver by following the onscreen instructions. You can customize what is installed, including whether or not you want a trial for the World of Warcraft online game on your machine. After you install the Catalyst Control Center, you'll need to reboot your computer to implement the changes.

 

 

It's now time to look into the Catalyst Control Center to see what kind of options it houses.
