Summary: Kaum eingebaut schon Bericht erstattet! Ich habe die Grafikkarte gestern Abend gekauft und direkt angespielt. Ich muss sagen ich bin baff!!! Ich habe von einer GEFORCE 7500LT zur MSI NX8600GT OC Edition gewechselt. Meine Erfahrungen Der Einbau der Grafikkarte war ziemlich leicht ging ohne Probleme benötigte Zeit ca.15 Minuten. Treiber Installation war auch leicht. Alles ohne Probleme und schnell ziemlich leicht einzubauen.
