Like all of the Sapphire video cards that I have received, this HD 3870 comes well protected inside the box. The video card in an anti-static bag, always a good thing to see.








The red translucent cover over the heatsink is quite large. The attractive lady from the front of the box is printed on a sticker which takes up most of the red cover. You can see the mounting bracket for the heatsink on the back of the card. This card supports PCI-E x16 as well as PCI-E 2.0.



The Sapphire HD 3870 houses one S-Video output and two DVI ouputs. Notice how this card takes up two PCI slots – one for the video outputs and one for the exhaust. This video card has a 6-pin power connector, so you’ll need to have a power supply that has one of these 6-pin power cables. If not, you can use the included 4-pin to 6-pin converter.



Now let’s move on to see what accessories and software are included with this card.
