Some of the other items included in the box are pictured here. This card comes with a good assortment of DVI-I to VGA converters, HDTV adapter, and power cables. They also gave me a couple of paper BFG case badges, but I definitely preferred their old case badge with their mascot on it.

Another view of the box's contents spread out gives a good impression of what they provide. The power adapter is for those who don't have the 6-pin PCI express plug on their power supplies. If I were running this in SLI mode, I would be required to have a PSU rated for at least 450w and 28A.

Modern video cards are very power hungry and thus require a direct link to the power supply to keep them going 100%. If you don't provide this extra power, they will lower their speeds to keep them from hurting your system or themselves, so it's important to connect the power cable.

The first benchmark I ran on this card even before I tried any games was the basic version of 3dMark06. With a single 6600GT I scored just over 1600 on the test, and most of that was due to the CPU. With the 7900GT, you can see that my score is vastly improved.

The next test I used was the somewhat antiquated Aquamark 3. Although it is no longer being developed, it still does a good job of testing a system's GPU and CPU. The lowest FPS recorded was 63 and the highest was 105.
