The Package

 

As far as the overall box design goes there isn't really anything we haven't seen before from ASUS. What is nice, however, is that they've opted for a thinner box. ASUS used to be one of the worst culprits for having those unnecessary huge boxes. As for the design, we can see across the bottom we have the model and clear mention that it's a part of the Dark Knight series. Above that we have some of the main features like 512MB of GDDR3, PCI-E 2.0 along with some of the software that ASUS include like GamerOSD and SmartDoctor.

We also again have mention of the Dark Knight series along with a picture of a aftermarket cooler; next to that we have a sticker that mentions an offer available and finally above that we have the ASUS logo and motto. The rest of the box is taken up by a picture of what pretty much is a dark knight.

Turning over again, we see mention of the model and Dark Knight series, while moving down we have a list of some of the features and below that we have a run down on the software that ASUS include and what it's capable of.

In the paperwork department we have a speed setup guide, S/PDIF setup guide and a piece of paper with a code that entitles you to 10% off a number of CUDA applications and games. As far as CDs go we have a manual on one and the other contains the driver along with a number of programs that we saw mentioned on the back of the box.

As far as cables go we've got all the standard ones, including component out dongle, dual molex to 6-Pin PCI-E power and a DVI to VGA connector. We've also got the DVI to HDMI connector and S/PDIF loopback cable which is quickly becoming more and more common in mid to higher end cards.
