The front of the box is all very standard and gives us a wealth of important information. We of course can clearly see that the card is an 8800GTS and sports 320MB of DDR-3 memory. We also see Dual Link DVI, along with a few other key features. We can also see that the card is HDCP ready which is of course becoming more and more important these days with the new HD DVD and Blu-ray technology coming out.
Turning the box over we have more information about the card with a focus on SLI, overclocking and the Dual Link DVI connectivity. We also have a small run down on some of the other features in a multitude of languages.
Moving to the inside of the package, it is unfortunately a bit blander then we had hoped - with no game included it was a letdown. Apart from the driver CD we have two quick guides, an install book and a user manual.
Cable wise is just as you would expect - two DVI to VGA connectors, PCI Express power connector, S-Video cable and HDTV out component cable.
The most disappointing aspect of the bundle is that if you do a hunt around on the MSI website, you can see the 320MB overclocked model that comes with a full version copy of Company of Heroes and this one is missing a full version game which is a disappointment considering the price range of the product but at least you won't be stuck with two game copies if you do decide to go SLI.
