Zotac GTX 260²
Packaging, Bundle & The Card
Packaging and Bundle
Although we've have had no previous experiences with Zotac's packaging skills, upon first inspection they seem to be rather good. Unfortunately it would appear some Christmas elves had slapped a large label on the back of the packaging, covering most of it. For that reason we only photographed the front of the packaging.
As you can see, Zotac have decided to cover a large amount of the box with a graphic, then have the company logo in the top left and product name down the bottom. The key specs are listed down the right, and a small, almost triangular sticker has been placed on the left informing you of the bundled Far Cry 2 Game.
Inside the outer box we have an inner white box. This is filled with some foam padding that hugs the card. There is a cut out in the padding which encloses all the bundled leads and cables with all the leaflets and disks laid on top of the card itself. Included in the box we have the usual bits and pieces; HDTV adaptors, 2x Molex to 6-Pin PCI-E adaptors, A users guide, driver disk, warranty slip and a DVI to HDMI adaptor.
As you can see Zotac have chosen the replicate the graphic from the front of the box onto the top of the card. The card itself uses the stock Nvidia cooling, however this is very weighty and feels of good quality, so should keep the card well within acceptable operating temperatures. From a connection point of view, we have the standard dual link DVI connections along with a TV-Out port.
At the back of the card we have two 6-pin PCI-E connectors an audio connector. This means the card can act as a pass-through for audio when connected using HDMI, cutting down on cable clutter. At the front we have two SLI bridge connectors, meaning this card can be used in Tri-Sli configuration with supported motherboards.
