Package and Accessories
The package of the GV-NX76T256D-RH “Silent Pipe II” has vertical orientation which seems to have become an established tradition because Gigabyte’s GV-RX19X512VB and GV-NX79X512DB models we’ve reviewed on our site earlier had boxes of this same form-factor, too.
The package is designed in the Civilization 4 style, indicating which game is included with the graphics card. The numerous captions and logotypes tell you the technical characteristics and capabilities of the enclosed product. The design of new packages from Gigabyte is elegant: it doesn’t make use of gaudy colors, yet is capable of attracting a potential customer. The positioning of the card as if for playing Civilization 4 appeals to strategic minds that don’t need as powerful graphics cards as people who play first-person shooters.
Besides the graphics card, the package contains the following:
- User manual
- Two DVI-I → D-Sub adapters
- YPbPr splitter
- CD with drivers
- CD with CyberLink PowerDVD 6
- DVD with Civilization IV
The user manual contains a detailed description of the graphics card and driver installation, so even inexperienced users shouldn’t have any difficulties at all.
Being not a very heavy application, but still a very exciting game, Civilization 4 makes a good companion to a mainstream graphics card.
So, the accessories to the Gigabyte GV-NX76T256D-RH aren’t gorgeous, but a full version of a popular game makes a very nice addition. After all, the key point of this graphics card is not in its accessories but in its design and ability for silent operation!
