GIGABYTE has bundled their GT220 video card inside a box that is multi-colored. The main features of the card including the 80mm large fan and the Golden Plated HDMI connector are prominently displayed on the box cover. The rear of the box has the main features of the GT220 and a description of the Golden Plated HDMI connector.

Opening the box we find that GIGABYTE has put a foam insert on the bottom containing the video card, the Driver CD and the Userís manual. As there is no 6-pin power connector on the card there is no need for a power adapter. The bundle is enough to get you started as there is a D-sub connector on the card you donít need an adapter to install one.

NVIDIA has gone to the monthly driver release ritual just like ATI. They released the 191.07 drivers a short while ago. GIGABYTEís website has the 190.45 drivers but I would always suggest using the latest drivers from NVIDIAís website. Note that the card supports PhysX and is enabled by default. During testing PhysX was disabled.
