    So what's the deal with this DDR3 and why is it better than the old DDR memory? The main reason is that lower voltage is needed to get this baby cookin'. Less electricity running through it means less heat, less heat means it can be [over]clocked higher. With this said we can expect to see some nice overclocking results, but lets save that for later.

    Props to XFX for their box. I know it may not be a big deal, but the box looks damn cool. Plus its fun to open. Meow.

    If their is one thing I like in a company, its a sense of humor. This 'X' covers the packaging in side of the box.

    Here is the package. The software included is Commandos 3, Black Hawk Down, Moto GP racing, and the driver disc. It also comes with two analog->DVI converters and two video cables.

    The heatsink&fan unit is very slick, sporting the XFX and NVIDIA logos. It is also very large, covering not only the processor but also the on-board memory as well.

    The back of the card reveals another large heatsink to cover the backs of the on-board memory and is another place to find the XFX logo.

    Ah yes. The dual digital outputs. Yum.
