Gigabyte's large Windforce cooler makes optimum use of the available space for cooling. If you look at the picture of the card's back-side, you can see that it does not extend beyond the edges of the PCB, making installation trouble-free.
The card does not require a full two slots in your system because the cooler does not occupy the full height of the slot.
Display connectivity options include two dual-link DVI ports, one full-size HDMI port, and one full-size DisplayPort. You may use all the outputs at the same time.
An HDMI sound device is included in the GPU as well. It is HDMI 1.4a compatible and includes HD audio and Blu-ray 3D movies support. The DisplayPort outputs are version 1.2, which enables the use of hubs and Multi-Stream Transport.
The card has a single SLI connector, which allows a dual-GPU SLI configuration with another GeForce GTX 660.
