What You Get
After you greedily tear open the pretty blue box, you will be greeted with several items to make sure that you get up and running in no time at all. Above is the package deal all together, but lets take a closer look at what we have to work with.
As with most video boards being sold today, you will get all the necessary cabling to handle those tedious chores of hooking up to a TV or similar device. Even if you have no immediate plans of using a television as a display, who can say that you won't end up with a HDTV and just want to try it out and see what it can do? In the event that you want to try it out, you will have the items necessary to do it without having to go out and buy more stuff.
Whoever came up with this gem ought to get a prize. And any manufacturer that adds it to their package ought to get another one.
What we have here is a very small device that is a dream come true for those who want the benefit of dual displays but can't justify the cost of that second display being a digital LCD monitor. It is a converter that allows you to hook up a standard CRT into the digital display port of the card. Just attach this to the digital port of the video card and then attach the 15-pin monitor cable into the converter.
Having used several nVidia based products, I can say that it is rare indeed (if ever) that you can expect something like this to appear in the retail package of any of their video cards.
Most video board manufacturers have long since done away with large software packages. This actually makes perfect sense since a majority of buyers already have the games that they want to play anyway. It saves money of the product and helps keep the retail prices more reasonable for the consumer.
With this in mind, you will get an Installation disk and a DVD utility called PowerDVD. The PowerDVD program has shown itself to be very capable for watching your favorite DVD movies (you DO have a DVD drive, don't you?) and the Installation disk offers drivers and helpful utilities to let you get the most out of your new video card.
