The first note that we have to make is just how nice it is to see that ASUS has mixed it up with the box design; it's good to see that they have decided to move away from the typical box design for this special Matrix model. The overall design has a really nice theme that does look great and grabs our attention.
We can see that across the top we have the Republic of Gamers logo while as we move down we have the model, which in this case is the Matrix GTX 285. Below that we have a little bit of a motto followed by the ASUS logo in the bottom corner.
Turning the box over we have a bit more detail on some of the power features that the ASUS GTX 285 offers and we also have a run down an explanation on some of the exclusive software that is included in the package.
Moving inside we have a pretty standard line up and included is the typical driver CD and quick user guide, also in true ASUS fashion we have a copy of the manual on CD, also included though is another manual on the new iTracker 2 software.
The cable department also doesn't hold any real surprises - we've got a PCI-E to molex power convertor, component out dongle, DVI to VGA adapter along with a DVI to HDMI adapter and a SPIDF loopback cable which will help get sound through the HDMI assuming you choose to use it.
As for extras we've got a CD wallet, which is something we've seen many times from ASUS.
