XFX GeForce 7900GS Extreme - An Overclocking Prince!

The Package


In true XFX style we have the funky X shaped box with our normal mean looking character on the front. We have all the main details and we can clearly see that the card is the Extreme model clocked at 480MHz.



We can also see that the card is PCI Express, comes with 256MB of DDR-3 memory and supports our normal array of technology like SLI and HDTV. The XFX line up have one of the better looking boxes on the market and it's nice and clear with all the important information on the front.



Moving to the back of the box we can get a sneak peak at the card along with a number of features that are supported. From first glance the card clearly resembles the GeForce 7900GT with what looks to be a similar PCB length, RAM layout and cooler.



Moving inside the box we have our normal line up of cables, S-Video cable for TV out, component cable for people who have a HDTV and two Molex to 6 pin PCI Express power. Also included are two DVI to VGA connectors.



Going to the paperwork side of things there isn't too much to get excited about. The only CD included is a driver but as always, we recommend you download the latest driver from the Internet. It would have been nice to see XFX bundle a game in the package as they are normally a slightly more expensive price - the overclock and bundle normally make this a little easier to swallow.
