A Closer Look
Since the GPU is from MSI’s Gaming line, the packaging keeps the with Dragon theme. A menacing looking dragon is featured on the front of the box while features and specifications are listed on the rear and sides.
After peeling off the outer box, the MSI R9 280x is tucked safely away in black foam. To ward off any damage from a static discharge, the card is wrapped in a protective anti-static bag.
Along with the card, MSI has included a quick users guide, software and driver CD, mini displayport to HDMI adapter, DVI to VGA adapter, dual Molex to 8-pin power adapter, 6-pin to 8-pin power adapter, hybrid BIOS documentation and a CrossFire bridge.
