Looking at the front of the box we can see an almost identical design to what the GTX 260 lightning offered. We can see across the top the MSI logo and NVIDIA one. Below that we have a picture of a plane with a bunch of lightning behind it.
Below the picture we have a little graph that gives us an idea of the performance the model can offer. Moving down, we have the model and below that we have some of the main features like the amount of memory and the mention that this is also one of the company's Military Class products.
Looking at the back of the box, we have a fair bit of information regarding the features the card offers. Starting from the top we've got some information on the cooler and below that we see what exactly Military Class means. Running down the right side of the box we have some of the main features that are offered with the specifications in the bottom left corner.
Inside the package we're fully loaded with information. We've got a booklet on the Lightning Series along with the quick user guide and standard manual. In the CD department we've got a driver CD along with another CD which includes MSIs Lightning Afterburner overclocking utility.
In the cable department we've got a DVI to HDMI and DVI to VGA connector, dual molex to PCI-E 6-Pin convertor along with a HDMI cable. It's nice to see the HDMI cable included; while you might not need it for your monitor they're handy to have around the house as I find myself snagging them to install home theater equipment that doesn't come with a HDMI cable, but offers the connectivity.
