Closer Look at Leadtek WinFast PX8800 GT Extreme
Package and Accessories
This product is packed into a box of a standard size and shape. The box is rather small and lacks a handle – you can easily put it into a bag or something. The package is painted orange and blue, which is a very gaudy and eye-catching, yet perhaps not very delicate, design. The face side of the box shows a picture of yet another war robot.
The word Extreme in the graphics card’s name is marked with a green oval. It means that this version of PX8800 GT has frequencies higher than the reference card’s. Basic technical characteristics like the amount and type of the graphics memory are listed at the bottom of the box. You can also learn that the box contains a full copy of Neverwinter Nights 2, a popular role-play game.
We can’t say this package design is better or worse than what we could see reviewing earlier products from Leadtek. It is just different. It is good, but not extraordinary.
The contents of the box are neatly laid out into the cardboard compartments while the graphics card itself is wrapped into an antistatic pack. Besides the graphics card, the box contains the following:
- 2 x Molex→6-pin PCI Express adapter;
- DVI-I→D-Sub adapter;
- S-Video→YPbPr/Composite adapter;
- Brief installation manual;
- CD disk with drivers, utilities and full user’s manual;
- CD disk with CyberLink PowerDVD 7;
- DVD disk with Neverwinter Nights 2 game.
We guess that’s good enough for the $199-259 price category. It is nice to see a copy of Neverwinter Nights 2 included with the WinFast PX8800 GT Extreme. Besides an exciting plot, this popular RPG features good visuals and can put a load even a top-end graphics card at its highest graphics quality settings.
