So what do you exactly get for US$90-$100 when you purchase Asus' ENGT240 mainstream videocard.
Axle supplied the usual driver and manual CD, a basic user's manual. There was no additional hardware included to keep costs down. All types of monitors are compatible thanks to the three different connectors integrated on the card.
No frills would be a phrase to describe this videocard once I got it out of the box. There is a pretty decent cooler attached and the construction quality is just like any card from any manufacturer, but don't expect much more. I can't hold it against Axle to try and keep costs down to a minimum.
