We normally don’t cover retail boxes in our articles, but ever since XFX pulled the hidden images stunt that landed them in court we have been checking boxes. XFX settled the ‘drool’ case with EVGA out of court in case any of our readers ever wondered what happned with that situation.
Inside the box one will find the expected bundle that comes with all brands of video cards. The bundle included with the XFX GeForce 8800 GT Alpha Dog includes two DVI-to-VGA adapters, a 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCI-Express power adapter, HDTV dongle, an S-Video cable and installation instructions. Also included it 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. The Driver disc included several NVIDIA Forceware driver versions and some other software like CoolBits for unlocking overclocking features. The bundle also includes a first for us – the ‘Do Not Disturb’ door hanger!
