The Leadtek 7900GS has an interesting looking fan. Let's hope it isn't terribly loud. I'm sure that I will replace it to do some overclocking, but I'm going to use the stock fan and cooler for the initial tests. Leadtek used two DVI connectors along with an S-video connector on the card. Today, that is pretty much the standard. The 7900GS is a little longer than the 7600GT I am replacing. Hopefully, it won't cause any installation problems.

As far as the goodies that come with Leadtek's 7900GS, we get a HDTV cable, a PCI-E power adapter, a DVI to VGA adapter, an installation manual, a quick start manual and a driver CD. Bundled with the 7900GS is Serious Sam II, Spellforce 2, and Cyberlink's PowerDVD and Orb. They undoubtedly will join the other unused bundled CDs that I have kept for some reason.
