Closer Look:

The Graphics Board:

The Sapphire HD 2900 XT comes safely stored in-between two to three inches of foam to buffer any blows during shipping.




The video card itself comes with a very large heatsink that has a red translucent Lexan cover. This lets you actually see the unit it's protecting. On the back of the card, you can see the bracket that secures the heatsink in place.

 


The Sapphire HD2900 XT uses a PCI-E interface and has two DVI outputs and one S-Video; you will also need an open expansion slot under the card to allow for the air intake on the heatsink to function.

 


The Sapphire HD 2900 XT requires an external power source to function, this card will run with two, 2x3 PCI-E connectors but in order to take advantage of its ATI Overdrive functions it will require one 2x3 and one 2x4 PCI-E connector. Many power supply manufacturers are sending these cables free of charge to those who have recently purchased a PSU, so give your manufacturer a call and reserve one today.
