The Package

 

Using the new box design, we can see the GIGABYTE logo across the top of the box along with the NVIDIA one in the other corner. The middle of the box is taken up mostly by a picture of a woman holding a gun.

The bottom of the box gives us the model along with how much memory comes with the card. In this case, it's that very weird amount of 896MB of GDDR3. Below this, we see the extended name of the graphics card.

Turning the box over, GIGABYTE go into some more detail on some of the features the card offers. We also have a small list of some of the main features, a bit of info about SLI and what's needed along with the model across the top again and a bit of a blurb on the card.

Getting inside, there isn't a whole lot going on in the paperwork world. We have an installation guidebook alongside a manual and driver CD.

The cable department is pretty similar with only the necessities included. Inside we have a break-out box that has component and S-Video on it along with two dual molex to 6-Pin PCI Express power convertors and two DVI to VGA connectors.
