Gigabyte GV-NX86S256H Silent Pipe 3
Package and Accessories
This product comes in Gigabyte’s traditional upright box.
Gigabyte’s graphics card packages are designed to match the included game: the GV-NX76T256D-RH model we reviewed earlier had a box with a Civilization IV design while this box has a picture from Supreme Commander . A sticker on the box reports that the graphics card has only modern solid-state capacitors on board. There is a main cardboard box inside the external colorful wrapping. Besides the graphics card, securely fixed in a polyurethane-foam tray, we found the following accessories:
- Molex → 6-pin PCI Express power converter;
- 2 DVI-I → D-Sub adapters;
- Universal S-Video/RCA/YPbPr splitter;
- User’s manual;
- CD disk with drivers;
- DVD disk with Supreme Commander game.
Not too many of them, yet there is everything you may want to use the graphics card normally. Moreover, Supreme Commander was deservedly praised as Best PC Strategy Game of E3 2006 and is a candidate for being put on the official games list of World Cyber Games 2007. So, the user gets a premium-class gaming title besides a silent graphics card.
We didn’t find any flaws in the user manual, so this graphics card kit deserves our praise. However, it is not the accessories that make this graphics card special.
