After physical installation of the R4830 is complete, a driver must be installed to take advantage of the cards full ability. There are two ways to accomplish this. MSI packages the R4830 with a CD that includes the necessary driver. You an also download the specific driver directly from ATI's website. The former is the easiest. Simply put the MSI CD into your optical drive and the installation process will begin. From the opening menu you can either install the video driver or browse the contents of the CD in explorer.
After you click on the "ATI VGA Drivers for Vista" button, you will be guided through the video driver and Catalyst Control Center(CCC) installation interface. This process will install all of the necessary drivers and utilities you need to take advantage of the R4830s power. Once the install is complete it is necessary to restart the computer.
Also found on the MSI CD is a user manual and a link to MSIs website. In addition three trial programs are included with the CD. These programs include PowerDVD 7, CyberLink DVD Solution 7 and Norton Internet Security 2008.
With the card and driver installed you can now tweak the video and display settings using Catalyst Control Center.
