The GTS 450 Low profile video card from Palit is packed in a little cardboard box which shows in front a big engine with the company logo in the center; also here we can see the product supported technologies (SLI is also listed but not supported by this particular product), the name of the product and the total video memory quantity:




On one of the box sides, we can see even more logos, along with the Palit frog mascot:




The back of the box holds additional information in multiple languages (technical specifications), along with the minimum system requirements:

Along with the card, inside the box we can also find a Quick Installation Guide, a CD with drivers, a PCI-Express to MOLEX adapter in case we have ran out of 6-pin PCI-Express connectors from our power supply and a shield:




Inside the Quick Installation Guide, we can find instructions on how to install the drivers located on the CD, along with hints on how to install the card inside our computer:

In the back of the card, we can see the 4-pin fan connector, along with the 6-pin PCI-Express power header:
