XFX 7600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series Video Card ReviewFormer staff writer - February 14, 2007
Since this is a PCI-E video card, it is required that you have a compatible motherboard to use it. Once you open your case and locate the PCI-E slot on your motherboard just click in the video card and you're ready to connect your monitor adapter to it.
The heat sink on the video card does stick out about an inch; this may be a problem if you have a thin case or another component that might block it.
Included with the video card is a driver disk, which contains not only the nVidia drivers for the video card, but other interesting software as well. After it is placed in your CD-ROM drive the XFX driver disk will auto run and once accessed, you will find all the available options.
The first option on the disk is registration; by registering the video card you will be able to take advantage of XFX’s “Double Lifetime Warranty”, covering not only you for the lifetime of the video card, but also if you happen to sell it when you upgrade in the future for example, the person who buys it from you is also covered too.

The next step is to install the video drivers. The drivers that the disk contains are, Windows Drivers, Directx 9c and TV Capture.
Once the video drivers are installed you will have the option to install the included Bundled Software, Trial Games and Personal Cinema.
If you are thinking about Overclocking your XFX 7600GT Fatal1ty video card, an Overclocking tool is included in the bundled software.
There are three Trial Games that are offered to try.
The Personal Cinema drivers allow you to turn your PC into a media center.
Since this video card is a 7600GT, what difference is there between this and other 7600GT video cards? Hopefully the specifications will be able to answer that question.
