MSI have a very nice package at the moment; everything is very clear and gives us a good idea of what we're getting. The right of the card clearly shows the brand while the bottom shows the model. Just above the model is a sticker that makes note of this card being an OC Edition model.
The right of the card goes into some more details and lets us know about some of the main features including 512MB of GDDR4 memory, Dual Link DVI and PCI Express. The card is also prepared for some Hi-Def goodness supporting HDTV, HDCP and HDMI.
Turning the box over we go into some more details on the card along with some of the other features that are available. The back is more of the same with extended information on the product.
Moving inside the package, on the paperwork and CD side of things there isn't much to see. We have two quick user guides along with a driver CD which carries with it a few MSI utilities.
Diving deeper inside we have a nice little line-up of cables. We have the standard S-Video, Component out, Molex to PCI-E and DVI to VGA connectors. We also have a TV-Out to S-Video/RCA connector and a DVI to HDMI connector.
The package isn't too bad; it would have been nice to see a game included since we tend to get them quite often with MSI cards, but maybe next time. It really isn't make or break these days with an inclusion of a game thanks to the fact that more often than not the game is something we don't want to play anyway.
