Recently i bought a brand new Asus 9800GT 512 DDR3 RAM Nvidia based graphics card. Price is really down with this card priced just above Rs 6000. The Tri-SLI card looks awesome but its a power hungry beast.There are so many gaming graphics cards to choose from these days. The market stratification is just amazing. At this point, there is probably a card for that will suit the need for just about any purpose you can imagine for playing advanced DX10 games like NFS Shift , CRYSIS 2 etc.
In this post i will be showing a tutorial on installing Asus 9800GT graphics adapter in your pc (Using Intel D945 GCNL) and Cooler Master 650 Extreme Power SPMPS (PSU).
In the Asus box you get the usual power adaptor, DVI to VGA dongle and a TV-Out RGB cable. There is also an instruction manual along with driver and software CDs. Like Gigabyte, ASUS includes their proprietary overclocking and monitoring software called SmartDoctor.
