The Leadtek WinFast 9800 GTX+ ships in a large retail box with plenty of package padding foam. The card itself comes in an anti-static bag and includes a user manual, software/driver CD, bundled game, DVI adapters, PCI-E power adapter and component video adapter.
The card appears to have the standard reference cooler design, but instead of a sticker graphic it has a raised panel vented design of anodized aluminum. The vents seem to be decorative only, air is still exhausted out the double rear riser slot. The card uses a green PCB.
The back panel features dual DVI connectors as well as a DIN plug for component and S-video out. As with all 9800 series cards, the GTX+ supports dual or tri-SLI. The card requires only a single 6-pin PCI-E for external power. At only nine inches long, the card seems small to me, at least compared to the ten and a half inches of a 200 series card.
Next up, installation.
