To start off setting up the HD3450 to run, you must install the drivers. To do this, pop the driver CD into the tray of the drive and the installation program will automatically start for you. It will ask you if you want to do an Express install or a Custom install. Custom will allow you to specify a path for installation. Once the install runs through, the computer will prompt you to restart to apply the new settings.
Once the computer is restarted, you can start the Catalyst Control Center (CCC) to configure the video card. The CCC can be run in Basic or Advanced mode. Since we here like to push our hardware to the limits, I am going to go over the Advanced mode, which will be shown in detail in the next part of the review.
