PRODUCT COMPOSITION



So what do you exactly get for US$189 when you purchase this higher end videocard. As mentioned earlier, you know you will get at least one game and some of the most recent releases of this card, you might get Call of Duty 4 as well. Can't beat a bargain like that.



XFX supplied a driver CD along with your full version of Far Cry 2. You also receive some install paperwork, a user's guide and some neat gaming collectable to use to ward off your mother/girlfriend/wife while you are gaming. Regardless, my wife is much meaner than the dog on the doorknob sign. she would chop him up and consume him with her death stare of MURDER! Heh.....


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The hardware kit is a little sparse but does come with one DVI-VGA converter and a HD component out dongle. I would have liked to have seen two DVI converters for dual analog VGA out but most monitors today are using DVI so this irritant is getting less and less noticeable.



And last out of the box is the videocard itself. Although I will be going into detail in the upcoming section, this videocard is remarkably simple other than the obviously large VPU cooler, but people with smaller cases might want to take note that this card is about 10 inches long. More on this card in the upcoming section.
