I always like to highlight the packaging during the review process. Knowing what the package looks like can be very helpful if you are concerned in receiving a genuine product from a 3rd party retailer. This particular card will arrive in a box typical in size for what you would expect for a video card. The card itself is in an anti-static bag of course and snugly fit in the foam housing. In the upper box they have the driver cd and user manual. I do remember a time when we used to receive adapters and cool stickers at the least. Oh well. As far as the packaging goes your card is safe and sound!
