The Package


Checking out the box, we can see a pretty cool theme going on with the front of it. The top left corner has the XFX logo and name while the center of the card has a giant 9. Around that we have pullets and other cool looking things going on. The top right corner of the box makes mention of Company of Heroes being included along with a HDMI adapter.



Moving down the box we can see mention that this is an Alpha Dog XXX Edition card along with some NVIDIA logos and mention of the very high 740MHz core clock speed. Below all this we have the model number along with the fact that we have 512MB of GDDR3 memory.



Turning the box over, we continue to see the cool theme going on along with mention of some of the NVIDIA technology, a bit of a blurb and a picture of the card. Across the bottom of the card we have the XFX website and the normal array of logos.




In the cable department we have an S-Video out cable, HDMI loop back audio cable, Molex to PCI Express, two DVI to VGA connectors, a single DVI to HDMI connector and a component out dongle box.



The paper department has a quick install guide, a rundown on what the connectors on the card are, an important tips and techniques guide along with a cool sign that hangs off your door handle which is something we haven't seen in a graphics card bundle before.



Along with the normal driver CD we also have a full version copy of Company of Heroes, which while being a little old now is still pretty cool if you're into that kind of RTS style game.


The bundle included is one of the richer ones that we've seen for a while. Let's check out the card and see what's going on in that department.
