Connect3D is a manufacturer of graphics cards for the PC industry and a long time certified partner of ATI. From the Radeon 7000 to the latest X850 cards, Connect3D has always been present with competitive prices, top-notch products and excellent support.
The X800 is ATi's answer to NVidia's very successful 6600GT. We've already examined how the AGP versions of the cards compete against each other and now it's time to look at the PCI-Express X800 and 6600GT. We'll compare Connect3D's X800 performance against that of the Extreme N6600GT from Asus and an X700 PRO from HIS.
If you're looking for a card with fancy packaging that's accompanied by a lot of software, Connect3D is not the vendor you should turn to. Instead, it offers a cheaper, minimal version of the X800 without any software bundles in a package that's just made to contain the card and not decorate your room.
Of course, inside the package you'll still find a CD containing the card's drivers, a printed "Getting started" guide to help you install the card and the following usual accessories:
- VGA to DVI adaptor
- S-Video cable
- Composite cable
- HDTV cable
