The Package

 

It's nice to see that XFX have moved back to the X shaped box with the latest graphics card from them. Oh what a box it is too - it looks great with our big mean wolf man on the front.

 

 

It's a very standard front box layout, this particular model is the XXX edition, which is a step up from the Extreme model and carries the highest clock speeds in the range. We have SLI compatibility, 256MB DDR-3 memory and 730MHz core clock. We can see across the top of the box that we have ourselves a copy of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, too.

 

 

Turning the box over we have a blurb across the top about XFX along with the key features of the 8600GTS. In the middle of the box we have a see through window that shows us our first glance of the new GeForce 8600GTS.

 

 

Moving inside the box we have got our normal array of goodies, two DVI to VGA connectors (finally included both - good job XFX!), S-Video cable along with a molex to PCI Express power connector just in case you don't have one on your power supply, which is also something XFX don't always do.

 

 

Diving further in the box we have some paperwork, quick installation guide, user manual and an explanation on the S-Video port. Included also in the package is a driver CD along with a copy of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter as we mentioned was included on the front of the box.
