What are some people thinking? Hundreds of dollars for a video card!? I just want to be able to play one or two DirectX 10 games at realistic resolutions. If this sounds like you, you're probably in the market for an entry level graphics card. Something inexpensive that can still make your games playable is what's most desirable. Will the Sapphire HD 2400XT video card be the solution? Let's go ahead and see how well this entry level card does against some of the lower end and middle performance mainstream cards. How will the card react when pushed to the limit? Join us as we thoroughly test and inspect this video card.

I really enjoy the boxes in which Sapphire's video cards are shipped in. They are extremely eye-catching and really make you want to open the box right away to retrieve your item from within. On the front of this box, we have a young man wearing a body suit that is decked out in Sapphire logos. The back of the box boasts the DirectX 10 capability that this HD 2400XT has.
Once you unwrap your card, you'll notice how small it is. Since it is an entry level card, I wasn't really expecting a big card. I then noticed how there was no fan on the video card, only a big heatsink. Also, take a look at the Crossfire connectors, VGA port, S-Video port, and DVI port on the card.
Included with the card is the user manual, HDTV breakout cable, DVI to HDMI converter, DVI to D-Sub converters, and a TV-Out converter. I was suprised to see that there was no driver CD included. Read on to find out why.
