EVGA GTX 295 1792MB GDDR3 Video Card Review

Packaging and Accessories



There really isnít much to say about the packaging of the EVGA GTX 295 since it is a literal mirror image of every other EVGA box we have seen in the past. It is predominantly black with a few red highlights and a massive EVGA logo. Meanwhile, the back of the box has very little information other than a picture of the card itself and the description of a few features.


On the side of the box there is a mention of the EVGA 90-day Step Up program but the real ringer is in bold letters right on the front of the box. Free PhysX. Yes, thatís right folks, FREE. Notice the sarcasm? For crying out loud, Nvidia is trying to push PhysX far too hard these days and this really is too much now.


The protection afforded the ultra expensive card is wonderfully excessive with the product being nestled within the embrace of a massive block of foam. Even the accessories have their own little compartment off to the side.


The included accessories are the bare minimum with a driver CD, instruction manual, 6-pin to 8-pin PCI-E adaptor, Molex to 6-pin, VGA dongle and SPDIF cable. You may notice the lack of a DVI to HDMI dongle. This is due to the fact that there is a HDMI connector built into the backplate of the GTX 295 so the dongle is not needed.
