Installing the Sapphire X1950 PRO Ultimate Edition was a breeze. All you need to do is remove all of the current display drivers on your computer, power it down, open up your computer, and take out the old video card. Then pop in the X1950 PRO and plug in your six-pin power cable into the video card's power port. Close up your case, plug in your power supply, and power on your computer. Insert the driver CD as soon as you get the chance and follow the on-screen instructions. Make sure that you check out Sapphire's website for the most recent drivers for the X1950 PRO.
Catalyst Control Center (CCC) and the display drivers can be installed by following the on-screen instructions.
When everything is installed, you'll have two options to view the Catalyst Control Center: the "Basic" way or the "Advanced" way. I'm going to be thoroughly examining the "Advanced" options.
"Displays Manager" is the place that you can change the resolution, color quality, and refresh rates, among other things. In "Display Options," you can turn on things such as "3D Refresh Rate Override" and display management.
You can change your monitor properties, performance versus quality settings, Avivo Color options, and all of your other color settings.
Since I'm an avid overclocker, I was glad to see the "ATi Overdrive" option.
Now that the Catalyst Control Center has been examined, let's test this card!
