Power Color X1950 XTFormer staff writer - May 1, 2007
As you look at the card, you will notice that the heatsink is provided by Arctic Cooling. The back of the card contains the serial and model numbers.
The Power Color X1950XT has a PCI-E format interface and has two DVI out connectors along with an S-Video connector. The X1950 XT is also VIVO and HDTV ready. You will need a PSU which has a six pin PCI-E power cable in order to run the video card as it does require an extra power source.
You will not need to purchase any cabling that is required, as everything you will need is provided with the video card.
Also provided are the software drivers, a quick install manual, and a software bundle which contains DVD software.
To install the Power Color X1950 XT, you will need a PCI-E slot on your motherboard. Remove the side panel of your case, locate your old video card and remove it, replace the old video card with the X1950 XT, plug a six pin PCI-E power cable into the rear of the card, close your case, and connect either a DVI or D-Sub cable into one of the video out connectors on the card. If you choose to use your D-Sub, you will need to use the DVI-VGA adapter that is supplied to convert from digital to analog. Your next step is installing and configuring your software.
