Software And Accessories Bundle

XFX's application bundle is a little more robust than that of the EVGA. It would appear that this manufacturer is solely looking for this to get into the hands of gamers, since they did not include any productivity software. Speaking of games, the card comes with Far Cry, X2 - The Threat, and Moto GP2. There are also some additional titles, but they are all older games. As always, the card comes with the most current driver available when it shipped, and as always, we recommend updating to the latest driver on NVIDIA's website.

As with the EVGA card, the 7800 GT will be shipping with Call of Duty 2 when it is available. Consumers currently have to register on the card maker's website after purchase and wait to receive their copy when it hits the shelves.

The card comes with a complete set of cables. There is a long auxiliary power cable included for users of older power supplies. Instead of having a breakout box, there is one cord that has all of the other ports on it. It contains the YPrPb connections for use with HDTV displays with the card's TV-out and S-Video out. There is also S-Video and Composite in. XFX supplies two S-Video cables so you can hook up to the S-Video in and out at the same time.
