Just putting that brand new XFX 9800GX2 into your system does not guarantee that it will be optimized for the system. The drivers, or instruction set, need to be installed to get the most from the graphics card regardless of make. For that to happen, you need to configure the card using the drivers and settings to optimize the performance for your needs.

Start out by inserting the software disk into the optical drive and let the autorun feature bring up the installation GUI. Once open, press enter to move on to the installation of the drivers. Choose video drivers and move forward.


















Choose Windows drivers and the installation process will begin. Allow the installer to complete and you will be prompted with a message that the computer must be restarted to complete the installation. Do so to finish the installation.



Once the installation is completed, the place to configure the video card software is the Nvidia control panel.


With the drivers installed and the settings viewed in the control panel, it's time to move on to testing the XFX 9800GX2 and see if it's all that it's cracked up to be.
