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 X300SE belongs to the lower-price range cards from ATi's latest "X" generation. Its price is around US$60 which makes it appealing to most low-end users. The card comes in three flavours, 64MB, 128MB and a Hypermemory model with support for up to 256MB. The card we'll be testing in this review is the Connect3D X300SE model that features 128MB of physical memory.
The card ships in the smallest of boxes, barely large enough to hold the card and it's accompaniment of accessories. Once again we'd like to remind you that Connect3D bundles no games along with their cards, in an attempt to keep the total end-cost as low as possible.
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 an S-Video to composite cable adaptor.
