The Package

Galaxy has crammed their GT 240 into a pretty small box. We like this for two reasons, the first being that it helps keep freight costs down and the second being that it makes us look like we care about the environment and we're saving some trees by using less packaging.

 

Outside of the box itself there's really not much more to the whole bundle with Galaxy, like Palit, choosing to only include a manual and driver CD.

The Galaxy cooler looks mean and has some serious weight behind it for such a small card. To be honest, though, most of the look is just that, looks. Really, we've just got a standard heatsink/fan sitting under that shroud. While it might look good, we know it's not going to do anything for the cooling. We'll find out just how the heatsink/fan performs, though.

 

Again, as far as the I/O department goes we've got a Dual-Link DVI, VGA and native HDMI port.

While not being mentioned anywhere, the Galaxy model does seem to be overclocked out of the box. The company has chosen to only bump the 512MB of GDDR5, so instead of a 550 MHz / 1340 MHz / 3400MHz QDR setup, we have a 550 MHz / 1340 MHz / 3600MHz QDR one.
