Looking at the package we see there isn't anything new going on with the design that's been present for quite a while now; apart from the courier sticker that was sitting in the middle of the box, that is. To the right we have a picture of a knight on a horse, while to the left we have mention of a discount on some games.
Across the top we have the ASUS logo, while working from the bottom we have the model; in this case the GTX 285. Above that we have mention of some of the main features the card offers which include 1GB of GDDR3 memory and some exclusive software that ASUS includes like SmartDoctor and GamerOSD.
Looking at the back we again have a run down on some of the features, but we also see a fair bit of information on all the software programs that the company includes. We've also got a recommended requirements list, resolution table and a few other bits and pieces.
Opening the package up and diving inside, we have a CD that includes the manual in a number of languages. We've also got a Speed Setup guide and a voucher that gives you a discount on some games and applications. You can get more information following the website address. We also have a driver CD that isn't seen here; it looks like a fellow reviewer who got the card before us decided to keep it for themselves. This CD also includes the applications that are mentioned on the back of the box.
In the cable department we've got a DVI to VGA connector, duel molex to 6-pin connector and a component out dongle. As far as extras go ASUS has also included a brown mouse pad with the ASUS branding. Again, though, someone has decided to pinch some of our cables, so what you will also get that isn't seen here is a S/PDIF loopback cable and a DVI to HDMI connector.
