ASUS continue with the big box we have seen them use for a while on their high-end cards. The front of the box for both cards is actually the same, with the only difference being that one mentions TOP which is of course the overclocked model.
We see the normal details on the front of the box such as the model and how much RAM comes with the card.
Turning the box over we have some more specific details of what's on offer from the card. We also see some of the more exclusive features that ASUS offer on their lineup of cards.
Moving inside the box we have a cool CD wallet which we have become quite accustomed to seeing on the high-end ASUS models. We also have a driver CD included along with a user manual on the CD and a hard copy of the speed guide for a quick an easy setup.
Cable wise we have the standard DVI to VGA connector, HDTV-out cable and Molex to PCI-E power connector.
Both cards share the same package and it's disappointing to see the lack of a full version game. High-end AMD offerings have been coming with Black Box and Company of Heroes lately, so to have a new high-end graphics card like the 8800GTS 512M coming without anything is somewhat disappointing.
