The first thing to notice about the EVGA 9400GT is how small the card is. The card is about 6.5 inches long and has a small heatsink/fan cooling the graphics chip. The card has a row of four 1024MB chips above the heatsink. This adds up to 512MB of DDR2 memory clocked at 400MHz (800MHz effective). The PCI Express slot provides enough power for both this card and the ATI HD 4350 meaning no external power is needed.

A SLI bridge is on top of the card providing support for two card SLI on the 9400GT. Pairing two of these cards together should provide the performance of a 9500GT card or thereabouts. A NVIDIA motherboard chipset with SLI compatibility is required to run two cards together in SLI or the upcoming X58 chipset motherboards.

The IO on the card consists of two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a TV-Out connector. The Dual Link DVI connectors allow the connection of two DVI monitors, two CRT monitors or some combination of the two. DisplayPort and HDMI monitors are replacing the DVI monitors but you can use them on this card with an adapter.
