MSI 8800GTX Continued
With the box out of the way let's get onto what we are all here for, the card!
We have a new cooler design, which while might look loud, really isn't at all - it will take up two slots though, so keep that in mind. Each card is currently made by one person so apart from the sticker on the front, there isn't much difference.
Size wise you can see the GTS compared to the ATI Radeon X1950XTX is exactly the same unlike the new big brother the GTX that comes in a fair whack larger.
A closer look at the fan sees that it isn't our normal fins from the center design. We can also see to the right the single PCI express power connector for the card.
Moving to the back it is all very standard. But we can see the absolute bucket load of screws that are holding the large heatsink in place.
Quick peak at the top of the card lets us find the SLI connector that is hidden behind the big cooler.
Finally moving to the side of it we can see two DVI ports which both offer HDCP support and Dual Link DVI.
Overall the card looks are pretty standard; it doesn't offer some extraordinary size, multi-power connectors, three slots or anything like that. The massive heatsink fan practically covers the entire card and is very effective when it comes not only to noise but temperature as well. Good job nVidia - no dust buster here!
