Gigabyte 8600GT - The Package
Initially when I opened the box I was not sure if Gigabyte had made a mistake and sent me a copy of Supreme Commander instead of a new 8600GT graphics card. Gigabyte have been doing the same setup for quite a while now, and it is nice too see something a little different.
Apart from the giant Supreme Commander image on the front of the box we have our normal lineup of information, 256MB DDR3, dual-link DVI, HDTV and PCI Express. We can also see some awards that Supreme Commander has earned, including Best Strategy Game of E3 2006.
Turning the box over we get some more detail on the card along with some of its main features. The 2 biggest parts on the back of the box include some blurb on the Silent-Pipe II that the card utilizes along with information on Supreme Commander.
Diving inside, the package seems a bit on the light side with just a single DVI-VGA connector and a breakout box for the TV-out functionality. A manual and driver CD are also included, as you would expect, along with the full copy of Supreme Commander mentioned already.
The package is well above average but we have to say it would have been nice for Gigabyte to include some of the cables needed to make use of TV-out, even if it was just a simple RCA or S-video cable. A second DVI-VGA connector would have also been welcome but it is good to see at least one is included.
