It's been a while since we've seen a graphics card from ECS and the box design we have here is something we haven't seen from them before. The middle of the box is mostly taken up with a picture of a female archer. Across the top we have the ECS logo and running down the side we have some NVIDIA logos that relate to some of the features the card offers.
Moving to the bottom, we have a few little boxes that let us know some of the main features of the card; PCI-E 2.0, DirectX 10, HDCP, HDMI and more. Above that we have the model, which as we've mentioned is the GTS 250 and we can also see that this one comes with 1GB of GDDR3 memory.
Turning the box over, we just have a run down on what the card is capable of; features like PhysX, GPU Accelerated Transcoding and CUDA can be seen here. We've again got the model, ECS and an NVIDIA logo along with the URL to ECS' website.
In the paperwork department we have a user manual and an installation guide that tells you how to setup the loop back cable so you can get sound along with video when you're using HDMI. Here we also see a driver CD that doesn't have anything exciting on it. As always, we recommend you go to the NVIDIA website to grab the latest driver for your operating system.
There isn't a whole lot going on in the cable department; we have two dual molex to 6-Pin PCI-E connectors, the loop back cable we just mentioned above along with a DVI to HDMI connector.
