Packaging and Accessories
The cardboard box with the card is rather small and designed in EVGA’s traditional colors:
The product’s model name, size and type of onboard memory and supported Nvidia technologies are all indicated on the front of the box.
Product specs, hardware and software requirements, and a list of the card’s video outputs can be found on the back of the box. There is a small window there for checking out the ID number on the card’s PCB. The product is additionally sealed into a plastic blister wrap, but we guess the conventional protection in the way of soft foam material would be preferable.
The EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature 2 is shipped together with two power cables (two PATA power connectors -> one 6-pin connector), a DVI->D-Sub adapter, user manuals, stickers, a CD with drivers and utilities, and a huge calendar:
The card is manufactured in China and comes at a recommended price of $519.99. This is a mere $20 higher than the recommended price of the ordinary GeForce GTX 680 2GB. Running a little ahead, we can say that the difference in price is more than justifiable. The product is shipped with a 3-year warranty.
