Packaging & Contents
Zotac uses their typical orange packaging which will definitely scream "buy me" when standing on a store shelf next to other VGA cards. The back has a list of specifications and a small window where you can take a closer look at the merchandise.
You will receive:
- Graphics card
- Instruction Manual + Driver CD
- DVI Adapter
- TV Out cable
- PCI-E power adapter
The 8800 GT design looks extremely sexy, the whole card is covered by the heatsink which uses round edges and curves to make it look more sleek. Please also note that the print on the cooler is real print covering the whole heatsink, not just a sticker. This increases the perception of build quality quite a bit.
The NVIDIA 8800 GT is using a 1 slot cooler design, making it ideal for smaller cases too. While it is not a long as the 8800 GTX, it is still a pretty big card with 22.5 cm PCB length (add a few cm for the power connector).
On the back you find the usual warranty stickers and product information labels, all memory chips are located in the side of the GPU.
Having two DVI outputs is standard nowadays for anything that is not a low-end budget card. Should you need to use the card with an older CRT, you can use the included DVI to VGA dongle.
