XFX 8800 GTS XXX 320MB Graphics CardFormer staff writer - May 8, 2007
This graphics board is truly a monster. The heatsink is as big as the card itself and you will need an open expansion slot below to utilize its air intake and exhaust.
The bottom of the card is where you will find the model and serial numbers, while the rear of the board contains a six-pin power connector. The 8800 GTS will require a power source to be connected in order to run.
The front outputs are dual DVI and S-Video. If your monitor does not support digital output, XFX provides a D-Sub dongle to convert it to VGA.
Also included are software drivers, a full version of Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, quick install manual and tips and techniques guide.
To install the graphics board, shut down your system, open your case, remove your old graphics board and insert the XFX 8800 GTS into your PCI-E slot. You will need to have an open expansion slot underneath the card, since it requires it to utilize the air intake on the heatsink. You will also need a PSU that is either SLI ready, or has a six pin supplementary power connector. Minimum PSU requirements are non-SLI 600W or SLI 700W. After everything is connected, replace your case panel and power on your computer. You are now ready to install and configure your drivers.
XFX advises: Do not use a four to six pin converter when connecting PSU to the Board.
