The XFX 8600GT Fatal1ty comes in a protective static reducing bag to lower the chances your card is DOA. The card itself has an interesting and unique heatsink design. The heatsink has several heatpipes which extend the heatsink to the opposite side of the card. There is also a small red insignia on the main heatsink. No fans are used, so additional noise will be added to your system, except for the noise from the games you are playing.
As you can see, the card is PCI Express x16 and has the SLI connector. Also, two DVI ports and an HD/SD Television out are present on the back of the card.
The card also has some bundled goodies. Included are the standard DVI to VGA converter in case you run an older monitor, an S-Video cable for a SD TV, the driver disc, the game "Company of Heroes", and a list of instructions incase you are not familiar with the installation process.
