Closer Look at Leadtek WinFast PX8800 GTS 512MB
Package and Accessories
The box with the WinFast PX8800 GTS 512MB resembles the box of the WinFast PX8800 GT Extreme we described in an earlier review. It is painted the same colors and has a picture of a robot, too. Perhaps not very original, this design is attractive anyway.
Product specs are printed on the box but the mention of PCI Express 2.0 support is missing although we know that not all G92-based graphics cards are compatible with mainboards that have PCI Express older than version 1.1. The number that indicates the amount of graphics memory is emphasized with yellow color so that you didn’t make a mistake when shopping.
The contents of the box are packed meticulously: the graphics card is fixed in pieces of foam rubber to avoid damage during transportation. Discs with drivers and software are placed into a small “Utility” box together with a user manual. The card comes with the following accessories:
- 2 x Molex→6-pin PCI Express power adapter;
- DVI-I→D-Sub adapter;
- S-Video→YPbPr/Composite adapter;
- Brief installation manual;
- CD disk with drivers and full user’s manual;
- CD disk with CyberLink PowerDVD 7;
- DVD disk with Neverwinter Nights 2 game.
The accessories are the same as included with the WinFast PX8800 GT Extreme. They are good overall especially with a copy of Neverwinter Nights 2, a highly popular, even though not very new, RPG. The packaging should be appreciated for its reliability if not for design.
