For around US$140 you will receive the following.
First off you will receive the usual user's manual along with the following software.
- Microsoft Dungeon Siege (Full Version)
- 3D Album PicturePro
- PowerDirector 3 SE Plus
- Power2Go 4
To keep prices as low as possible and seeing this is a value orientated card, HIS chose to just include one full version game which is still more than what you get with a US$400+ card when you buy from most manufacturers. I know it is not the latest game, but hey, it IS something.
The hardware suite contains the following:
- S-Video Cable
- RCA Cable
- Conversion connecter Mini-Din to RCA
- HDTV Output cable
- DVI to VGA Adaptor
Again, everything is included and HIS even through in a high quality component video connection for your HDTV or if you want to hook the videocard to a S-Video or Component video connection on your more standard TV or VCR.
And at last you get to take your first look at the IceQ X700 videocard from HIS. Doesn't look like a value card does it? But really, it is just a standard X700 with some great cooling. More on that in the next section.
