Palit really only have two types of boxes and both look almost identical. The Nvidia cards offer a green background while the AMD ones offer a red. The good thing about this is that it helps keep the costs down; instead of having to produce a bunch of different boxes every time a new card comes out they can do a run of stickers, slap it on the box and ship the card straight out. This helps to get the cards to the market quicker and the savings are handed down to the consumer.
As for the front of the box we have the standard layout, we of course have our main sticker that tells us the model along with some of the main features, of course this one being the Super and sporting 512MB of GDDR3 memory. We can see that the card comes with a game inside, has a steam offer and also carries with it support for HDCP.
Turning the box over we have some more details on the card in a multitude of languages. Across the bottom we see the Palit logo along with a contact e-mail address along with their website address.
Diving inside the package we have a pretty standard line-up, we have with us a quick installation guide, a leaflet on the Steam offer from Valve, a full version copy of Xpand Rally, and also a sticker, driver CD and leaflet on the Get-all-3 promotion.
Cable wise we have with us a Component-out cable and a single DVI-to-VGA connector. All in all the package is pretty standard but we do get a full version game while Palit still manage to be one of the cheapest cards on the market.
