First Look

Included with the OCZ 8800 GTX is an installation manual, driver CD, S-Video cable, AV cable, HDTV cable, two DVI-to-VGA adapters, two 4-pin Molex to 6-pin PCI-E adapters and the 8800 GTX card itself.

The same graphics from the front of the retail box make their way onto the card's cooler. Other than the graphics, the card looks just like any other reference-based 8800 GTX. One thing to note: early production models of the OCZ 8800 GTX were built using a green PCB. The most recent versions of the card feature the black PCB you see here. I spoke with OCZ about this and they confirmed that the only change in the card is just what it appears to be, the color of the PCB.

Two DVI connections and an S-video connection make up the bracket area. Please remember that this card occupies two PCI slots so make sure you have room / can spare the room in your system. Also, two 6-pin PCI-E cables are needed to supply power to the card, so once again, make sure that your power supply is up for the job. OCZ recommends a minimum 450w or greater power supply with a 12v current rating of 30A. Like all 8800 GTX cards, the OCZ version is very large; we measured ours at 10.5" from end-to-end.

As was mentioned in the intro, we don't see anything new and exciting as far as design and looks are concerned. Next up, installation, overclocking and temperatures...
