ASUS GeForce 8800GT 512MB Graphics Card - The Package

After checking out an overclocked variant recently, Shane now sees how a stock clocked 8800GT fairs against the rest.

The Package

 

We continue to see large boxes from ASUS which are just a plain pain in the butt to take pictures of. The front of the box is covered primarily with a Company of Heroes picture along with the standard information.

 

 

Apart from the Company of Heroes cover we can see that the card is an EN8800GT, comes with 512MB DDR3 memory and is PCI Express 2.0. There isn't a whole lot to the front of the box but we have everything important.

 

 

Turning the box over we have some more details on the card along with details on some of the more exclusive features that ASUS offer on their card. The back gives us a fair bit of information but the chances are it's nothing that will probably interest you too much.

 

 

Moving inside the box, in the cable department we have a pretty standard line up; PCI-e to Molex connector, S-Video to Component connector and a single DVI to VGA connector. Nothing too exciting but everything we need none the less.

 

 

There's a bit more in the CD department, we have the SpeedSetUP guide which includes a driver CD and an array of ASUS exclusive programs. We also have a multi-language manual on CD along with a copy of Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts if you hadn't guessed that by looking at the front of the box.

 

 

Also included is a nice little CD wallet to store your CDs. It's just one of those little bonuses you get by buying an ASUS card, a little something extra.

 

The package isn't bad and the inclusion of a current full version game is nice. If only we received the Crysis bundle like Korea, that would be simply awesome but unfortunately even they are getting it in limited form.
