The installation of a video card is one of the lesser daunting upgrades that the user can do. First, shut down the computer and remove all power from the system. Open the chassis, identify the graphics card and remove the retaining screw that hold it in place and remove the card. After unpacking the NX8600GT, carefully insert it into the 16x PCI-E slot designated for the video card and gently push down to set the card. Install the retaining screw to hold the card in place, close up the chassis and get ready for a more stimulating visual experience. Power up the system and install the drivers and applications that suit your needs.
The video card will not work properly without the correct drivers for the application. First, place the disc into the optical drive on your computer and the driver installation window should start up. There are four tabs that can be accessed on this driver installation window. The first is the driver menu, followed by the utilities section, and the last two are MSI's contact information and the product manual. If an automatic install is not to your liking, you can always browse the driver disc to find the specific items for your installation.
Choose the driver install on the first tab and complete the driver installation. There were no surprises such as non-WHQL certified drivers. Reboot the computer and the installation of the drivers is complete.
