ASUS EN8800GT TOP 512MB Graphics Card Review

by Michael "SKYMTL" Hoenig     |     April 7, 2008

Packaging and Accessories


ASUS has packaged their 8800GT 512MB in a gargantuan box which is bedecked with a picture depicting and Allied and an Axis officer from the cover of Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts. The rest of the graphics hold the usual marketing speech which includes performance projections as well as mention of the different software you get with this card. Meanwhile, the back of the box contains a more detailed description of the features and specifications.


The entire top of the box can flip open to reveal yet more information about Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts as well as information about ASUS’ proprietary overclocking, monitoring and screenshot-taking software called GamerOSD.


What we have been seeing in the past few photos is actually a cardboard sleeve which holds all the marketing and is slipped over a plain white box which holds the card and all of the accessories. The card is nestled into the protective embrace of a polystyrene cutout in the leftmost portion of the box and is additionally protected in an anti static bag. All of the accessories are pushed off to the side and they all get their own small compartment so they do not go flying all over the place during transport.


As is expected with any ASUS graphics card, the accessory package is more than complete. You get:

- Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts (Full Version)
- Driver CD
- Software CD
- HDTV-out connector
- DVI to VGA adaptor
- Molex to 6-pin adaptor
- Instruction manual

In addition to that you get a vinyl CD wallet which is without a doubt the crowning glory of this package after the inclusion of Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts.
