With the great economic hardships that we are in more and more people are being cost conscious when they make a purchase wether it be gas for the car or computer hardware. We want the best we can get for the money we spend. ATI has realized this issue and also realize that people want to get that upgrade to bring their computers faster and up to date so they have released the HD 4830 series card. The HD 4830 series cards bring a good performer for not a lot of money to the video card table. PowerColor has released their HD 4830 targeted at mainstream PC users looking for a bit of a graphics boost.
The PowerColor HD 4830 card comes packaged in the same type and design that the other 4800 series cards arrived in that I previously tested. On the front of the box is their mascot and logo surrounded by specification logos and the card model. On the rear of the box PowerColor expands on some of the more important specifications and features that the HD 4830 has to offer.
Opening the packaging there is an inner box that is designed to keep the contents and the card safe and secure. Once you open the flap you get a teaser of the card in the protective anti-static wrapping. Inside the box is the PowerColor HD 4830 card, a driver CD, and a manual. Nothing else is provided.
Now that everything is out of the box let's get a better look at the card up close.
