GeForce 9600 GT Triplet

Some very interesting and original products from Gainward and Forsa.

The basic bundle must include the following items: User's Manual, CD with drivers and utilities, DVI-to-VGA and DVI-to-HMDI adapters, component output (TV-Out) adapter, an external power splitter, and an audio cable to plug to a sound card (for audio HDMI feature). And now let's see what other accessories are bundled with each card.

The box lacks a DVi-to-HDMI adapter, but it's not required, because the cards have a corresponding jack. In return, the bundle includes DVD programs from CyberLink and an old game.

Forsa again ignores basic needs and does not supply a DVI-to-HDMI adapter.

Bundled components are packed in a large cardboard box, where the card is wrapped in air-bubble film and put inside a small box. The latter is secured in the middle of the box with struts. That's why damages in transit are out of the question. Other bundled components are under the struts.

The boxes differ only in labels and inscriptions. Everything else is identical. Gainward's box design hasn't changed for years, so it's boring to describe.

Forsa GeForce 9600 GT 512MB (New edition)

The card inside an antistatic bag is in a cardboard compartment. Owing to its size, it cannot dangle inside, and such transit damages are impossible. The package itself consists of a glossy jacket and a box made of white thick cardboard. Artistic design is rather dull, we are sick and tired of monsters.
