Windows 7: Just bought a new card - any install advice

02 Jun 2010   #1

Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Just bought a new card - any install advice

I currently have a Creative X-Fi OEM which I recently got working with help from this forum. Still not 100% happy so have lashed out on a Asus Xonar Essence (the one with built-in headphone amp).

I intend to uninstall the Creative software through Revo Pro and the driver through Device manager. Is there anything else I should be aware of or doing?

Bought a video card (and upgraded the PSU)
When I built my system a few months ago I had a Celeron G540 and I thought the Intel HD Graphics 1000 was pretty decent. When the i3-2105 was $25 off at Newegg I bought it because it has Intel HD Graphics 3000 and I thought it'd be better. The CPU is much better but the graphics seems to be the...
