The Box and Bundle
The retail packaging on the XFX GeForce 9800 GX2 Graphics Card is nice and simple with a big number nine right in the middle. The core clock frequency and bundled game are clearly labeled on the front of the box, so you know what you are getting before you open the box.
Inside the box, one will find the expected bundle that comes with all brands of video cards. The bundle included with the XFX GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB video card includes two DVI-to-VGA adapters, a 6-pin PCI Express power adapter, audio cable and installation instructions. The Driver disc included NVIDIA Forceware drivers and some other software like CoolBits for unlocking overclocking features. Also included is the full DVD version of THQ's Company of Heroes and another disc that includes the DirectX10 game update, which is worth using since you just purchased a DirectX 10 ready graphics card. Lastly, the bundle also includes the 'Do Not Disturb' door hanger like the other Alpha Dog series cards.
Now that we know what the features of the card are, what the retail box looks like and what comes with it we can look at performance numbers!
