Introduction:

Are you looking for a new video card for your system? Are you the type of user who is going to be playing the newest games on the market or are you just going to be using your computer as a workhorse for graphics and video editing? What ever you are planning on building the computer for, you may just want to check out ASUS's new ENGT240. The card is going to be able to play just about every DX10 game out there, and it is going to be able to add some power to your graphics and video editing software that you use on a daily basis, lowering rendering times. I am curious how well the ASUS ENGT240 is going to compare to the other cards that are currently out on the market in its class.

Closer Look:

Looking at the packaging for the ASUS ENGT240 video card, the first thing that is going to pop out at you is the image of the warrior with a sword raised high atop a battle horse. This image gives you the impression that the card is ready for anything that you can throw at it - we will find out how well that holds true shortly. The other thing that grabbed my attention was at the bottom of the package where it lets you know what video card is packaged inside, the ENGT240, while to its right there is a GDDR5 print that is on fire. At the top of the package, on the left hand side, you are going to find the ASUS logo with the slogan "Inspiring Innovation * Persistent Perfection" printed below it, letting you know how dedicated to performance ASUS is. In the middle of the package, you are going to see the Xtreme Design logo, letting you know that the cooling solution on the card is not the standard reference cooler. Right above the ENGT240 print, you are going to find the 512MB badge, letting you know how much onboard memory the card has. To the right of that, you are going to find the HDMI, PhysX, and CUDA badges, letting you know some of the features of the card. On the back of the package is a list of the powerful features of the card in the green section at the top, and in the middle you'll find the ASUS Exclusive Innovations, such as Splendid, GamerOSD, SmartDoctor, and Xtreme Design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Upon opening the packaging, you'll find the ASUS ENGT240 wrapped up nice inside an anti-static bag to help prevent any damages that may happen during the shipping/unpacking process. You are also going to see that the card itself is tucked away inside of the packaging nice and safely so that the card will not move and bounce around inside the packaging while it's being shipped to you. Under the card you will find the SpeedSetup booklet that has the Electronic User Manual and VGA Driver discs tucked away inside.

 

 

Now that we know exactly how the ASUS ENGT240 is packaged, it's time to take a nice close look at the card itself.
