MSI Ti4800SE-VTD8XWed, Apr 16, 2003 - 9:00 AM
When it comes to opening the UPS box and pulling out your new video card, you will note that MSI has dotted their I’s and crossed their T’s on this box. The MSI graphics team created a nicely laid out box that crams a ton of information into a small space but does not overwhelm the reader.
This is the part that I have not seen another manufacturer come close to beating Micro-Star International. Their software bundle is untouched in terms of what is included. Bundled with the Ti4800SE-VTD8X is a very impressive assortment of software and games. It comes with a total of 10 CD’s packed full with the software listed below!
