The Package


Straight away the XFX GTX 280 box really stands out with the giant lime green glow looking pretty good. In the background we have the wolf-like figure showing with GTX in large letters on the front and below that, 280. Across the top of the card we can see both the XFX and NVIDIA logos. To the top right corner we can also see that a full version copy of Assassin's Creed is included in the box.



Across the bottom of the box we can see it's of course PCI Express 2.0 and comes with 1GB of GDDR3. Above the memory we can see some more NVIDIA logos along with the fact we have a 670MHz core. Above that we have mention that this card is a XXX Edition.



Turning the box over, we have a picture of the card along with some of the key features it offers. We have a bit of a blurb on the left of the card and a bit more detail on the features that the card offers. Across the bottom of the card we have some more logos which once again cover some of the features on the card.



Inside the box we have our driver CD along with a full version copy of Assassin's Creed, as mentioned on the front of the box. We have a few manuals along with a little sign to hang off your door to let those annoying people outside it know not to disturb you during your intensive gaming sessions.



As far as cables go, we have a Molex to PCI Express connector, audio loop back cable, DVI to VGA connector and a Component-Out dongle.
