The Package


We've got a darker themed box on our hands this time around; across the bottom we can see the model in silver while up on the left side of the box we have the MSI branding. We continue to see the same kind of theme with the girls face in the middle.



The top of the card makes mention of 1GB of memory, while going down the right side of the box we get some more detail; we again see the 1GB of memory mentioned along with it being stated it's GDDR3 based. We can also see it's HDMI, HDCP, HDTV, Dual Link DVI ready and comes with two DVI ports and TV-Out.


Below this we have another little sticker that tells us that the card is overclocked. Unfortunately the speeds aren't stated on the front of the box so we won't know until we open it up.



Turning the box over and we have some more details on the card along with some of the MSI technologies implemented. We also have a bit of a blurb on SLI and what is needed to get it up and running.



Inside the box we have the standard quick user guides along with a driver and utility CD.



The cable department is pretty full on with the standard cables being present such as S-Video Out, Molex to PCI E, DVI to VGA and Component out cables. We also have a loop back cable for sound and a DVI to HDMI adapter.


The package isn't too bad, though it would have been nice to see a game included in the package since we quite often see a decent game included with some of MSIs higher end cards.
