The MSI box is certainly eye-catching with the card itself dominating the box in purple hues, and the model in chrome lettering. A pig to photograph but amazing in "real-life".

The accessories package is robust with all the adaptors and connectors one could realistically hope for. It is quite amusing to see a quick start guide for the card, as GPUs are one of the simplest hardware alterations you can make.

The card itself is naturally dominated by the Twin Frozr II and thusly looks very similar to any other card equipped with it. It's as stunning as it's ever been with its gun-metal covering and very highly polished heat-sink.

Connectivity is catered for with two mini-DisplayPort's, a HDMI and two DVI outputs. Finding a single DisplayPort monitor is both difficult and expensive so two seems an extravagance, but at least you can't want for connections. Perhaps two HDMIs would be preferable in these modern 'multi-purpose display' times.

Power is provided by two PCIe 6-pin connectors, which should give all the juice you'd ever need.

Finally a little bit of graphics card porn. That heat-sink is a work of art.
