The card itself is a reference card through and through with the same heatsink and fan cooling solution as the NVIDIA reference card. Gigabyte has their picture of their robot mascot that is sort of a Transformer on the front of the card. The Gigabyte logo and the name of the card is on the card as well.

The rear of the front has a 7-fin fan with an enclosure holding the fan in place. The Gigabyte logo is on the fan. On top of the card is where the two 6-pin power connectors are located. The SLI bridges for connecting two or three GeForce GTX 275 cards together are also on the top of the card behind the bracket.

The card has two Dual-Link DVI-I connectors and a TV-Out connector. When combined with adapters you can have two analog CRT monitors, two digital LCD monitors or two monitors with HDMI output. The TV Out gives added flexibility with the ability to install a HDTV on that connection. The card is a PCI Express Generation 2.0 card, meaning it will have 5GB/second bandwidth between the card and the chipset.
