The installation kit is something of a misnomer and verging on hyperbole on Inno3D's part, really, as it contains just the driver CD.

Common sense dictates that the consumer should download the latest WHQL drivers from NVIDIA's site, and you can access them here.

Tom Clancy's GRAW 2 is the full-game version, on DVD, and makes reasonable use of the card's power, we feel.


The Inno3D GeForce iChiLL 8800 GT has a three-year warranty that's handled through the retailer - so make sure to pick a retailer that you trust will be around for the duration. The third year's cover is specific to the iChiLL line and the warranty is based on the card rather than the initial purchaser.

Inno3D states that retailers will replace any defective cards that are still under warranty directly from their own stock. However, as Inno3D has no centralised European hub, any stock shortages will necessitate shipping from Hong Kong, which can inevitable delay.


A reasonable bundle for a premium SKU that's backed up by a reasonable warranty, too.
