After the 9800GTX+ is physically installed, an appropriate driver must also be installed to take adavantage of the card's capabilities. There are two ways to tackle this. You can either download the appropriate driver directly from nVidia's website or you can install the driver from Palit's highly simplified drivers CD.
After inserting Palit's drivers CD into your optical drive the autorun feature will start the install GUI. There are few options in the GUI menu. The first two menu options allow the user to install either DirectX 10 drivers or install Direct 9.0c. The third and fourth menu options will let you browse the CD and view a basic help menu.
Select the "Install Drivers" button to begin installing the 9800GTX+'s driver. Once the installer is finished you will be prompted to restart the computer. A restart is required to complete the install.
Every aspect of the 9800GTX+'s settings can be controlled using nVidia's Control Panel. Basic options such as display resolution and color settings can be adjusted in the "Display" tab. Also, a simple slider can be used to adjust the game image settings from "Performance" to "Quality" in the "3D Settings" tab.
