GIGABYTE 8500GT Turbo Force Ultra (Page 2)

The Package

The game of choice at the moment is Dawn of War, over the past few months we have seen this being used along with Call of Juarez and Supreme Commander. All are big name games so if you're a fan of this particular one you're already looking at a decent saving.

With most of the box covered in the Dawn of War theme there is still some important information scattered over it. We can of course see the model and some of the main features like PCI Express, DirectX 10, HDCP, HDTV and 256MB of GDDR3 memory. We also see mention of the fact that all solid capacitors are used along with the mention of Turbo Force and what it does for us.

Turning the box over we have some more detail on what the 8 series of NVIDIA cards can offer you along with a little blurb about the GIGABYTE model and how it boasts cinematic gaming effects, without breaking the bank.

Moving away from the box and inside the package we have with us the standard manual and driver CD along with a full version copy of WarHammer 40000 Dawn of War Dark Crusade.

Looking further we have two DVI-to-VGA connectors along with a TV-Out break-out box which offers both S-Video and Component. Overall the package is pretty good but what it's missing is some cables. If you want to make use of the TV-Out you're going to have to purchase separate cables to get it up and running, unless you happen to already have some that is.
