Palit GeForce 9800 GTX Box & Bundle
Palit might be a new name to many enthusiasts, but they have been around since 1988 and are only now trying to break into the enthusiast graphics card market. Palit is one of the largest providers of graphics cards in the world and has the capacity to produce 2 million graphics cards and motherboards per month. The GeForce 9800 GTX tht Palit sent over is based off the NVIDIA reference design. The retail box has the usual frog that you will either love or hate.
The back of the retail box is pretty boring as it lists five technical specifications of the card in twelve different languages.
- NVIDIA GeForce chipset
- Advanced display pipeline with full nView capabilities
- Complete DirectX support, including DirectX 10.0 and lower
- Full OpenGL 2.1 and lower support
- Drivers included for Windows 2000, XP, XP (64-bit) and Vista
The entire back of the box has those five features listed, which seems like a waste of space if you ask us.
The bundle with the Palit GeForce 9800 GTX includes a single DVI-to-VGA adapter and a video output cable. The Driver disc included NVIDIA Forceware drivers and some other software like VDOTool for unlocking overclocking features. Palit also included the full DVD version of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary, which runs $27.99 plus shipping at stores like Newegg and Best Buy, so it makes the bundle very solid.
