What You Get

 

 

Once you break open the box, you'll be greeted by the normal parts and pieces that you would expect to find. You get the video card (of course), a users manual, S-Video cables and some software.

 

 

Speaking of the software, here is what you get. A driver disk complete with 41.72 nVidia Detonator Drivers, WinDVD 4, Outbreak and Ballistics. The last two are a couple of games that tend to show off the capabilities of the video card. Most manufacturers have gotten away from a large software package and it makes good sense. After all, a vast majority of the folks who are plunking down money for a quality video card already have the games that they want to play on it anyway. It is wasteful to add a bunch of plastic in the box that will end up in the garbage, so why bother.

 

Hmmm...now if only we could convince the AOL folks of this simple fact.

 

 

The S-Video cables are very basic, but there really doesn't have to be anything fancy here. You have the cable that ports into the video card and a removable extension that ports to the TV set. Simplicity does have some advantages.

 

And now on to the important part; the video board itself.
