The packaging for the Inno3D GeForce 6800 was nice and clean and what we've come
to expect in the way of quality and finish.
As you can see, they standard DVI-VGA converter, manual,
s-video cable and software bundle is included. A y-adapter molex connector is
also included. Seven CDs are included in the bundle but there is only one game
(3 CDs), that being Commandos 3: Destination Berlin (currently a $15 value).
Commandos 3: Destination Berlin is a fine game if you're into that genre and it
was received well upon its release last year. InterVideo WinDVD Creator
and WinDVD 4 are also included (1 CD),
always nice programs to have around. The remaining three CDs are: 3DMark2003 (not
the full pro version as some review sites have claimed...it's the same thing you
can download for free
from Futuremark's website), a driver CD and a game demo CD (again, demos
that you can download for free but handy to have if you are a 56ker). The demos
are: Lock-On, Praetorians, Yager and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4.
CARD PHOTOS At this point in time there's not
much to be said that hasn't already about the 6800 series cards in a physical
sense. The Inno3D GeForce 6800 is a single-slot card and only requires a single
power connection from your power supply.
However, there is one differentiating factor of the
Inno3D card and that is its black PCB which I find very slick looking. One
could easily take off that ubiquitous mermaid silk-screened HSF cover
and paint it black. You would then have an even sharper
looking card (if not a bit minimalistic) to show off to your friends.
