XFX 7600 GT XXX PCI-E Video CardFormer staff writer -
Installation of the card was easy. After opening my case and removing the old video card, all that was needed was to put the XFX 7600GT XXX in the correct PCI-E slot. Since the card has no need for extra power, you don’t have to worry if your power supply has a PCI-E power connector.
