The Software Package
You get three CD disks with the package. They include not only drivers for the card, but also some other programs that will allow you to have a little fun as well. let's see what we have here...
- Driver Disk
The driver disk will has a nice autorun file that brings up a very simple interface for you to install the drivers for your new toy. The disk features the nVidia 21.81 Det4 drivers, and also installs the registry hack that allows you to overclock your card from the advanced properties screen. No second-hand programs are required to set the speeds to the desired level.
Also included on the disk is the ability to browse through a full manual, install DirectX, and browse the disk. A simple click and you're on your way to the desired task.
WinDVD is a software utility that allows you to play DVD movies without the expense of an added hardware decoder card. I already have a hardware decoder card, so didn't install this program on my system.
- Ulead VideoStudio SE
For those with a bit of an artistic side to their personalities, there is the Ulead VideoStudio program. Video Studio is designed for making movies on your computer. It allows you to connect a video camera to your system and directly input that signal to the program. From there, you have a simple step-by-step interface that allows you to either make movies, or send out video greeting cards via email. Granted, these are only a couple of examples that are available with this program, but it gives you an idea as to what you can accomplish with it. Also included with the program disk is a manual that shows you exactly how to create your own media.
