Zotac GeForce GTS 450 AMP!
Packaging and Accessories
The product box differs from other Zotac boxes with its size only. It is very small, matching the low price category of the GeForce GTS 450. It is painted Zotac’s traditional aggressive mix of black and yellow.
There is not much info on the box, which is quite typical of modern graphics cards. You can only learn the amount and type of the card’s graphics memory on the front panel. However, there is a sticker on the left panel of the box telling you the key product specifications including the GPU and memory frequencies.
The packaging is not much of a protection for the graphics card: there is only a cardboard flap inside. The card itself is wrapped into an antistatic pack. It is accompanied with the following accessories:
- DVI-I → D-Sub adapter;
- 2x4-pin PATA → 1x6-pin PCIe adapter;
- Brief installation guide (multilingual);
- User manual;
- CD disk with drivers and utilities;
- Zotac logo sticker;
- Zotac Boost Premium marketing sheet.
You cannot expect a $129 product to come with rich accessories, yet we can’t find any fault with the Zotac GeForce GTS 450 AMP! in this respect: the box contains everything you need to install and run the card successfully. Besides, the driver disc contains the Zotac Boost software suite which includes a few helpful tools.
