A Closer Look – MSI GAMING GTX 950 2GB
Packaging and Accessories
The outer case is almost exactly the same as the rest of the MSI GAMING graphics card range apart from the card version.
The back of the box shows off all of the key features of the card including the Gaming App which allows you to choose between preset clock speeds.
Inside the box is a large poster-style user guide, driver disk and DVI to VGA adapter.
A Closer Look
The card is very large, almost pointlessly large, but MSI have utilised the same cooling design from other models.
The back of the card is odd. It has the holes for a backplate, yet nothing has been added. Also towards the power connector, there are very few components; so approximately 2″ of the card could be taken away to make it a more compact design.
Looking down at the side of the car, you see one of the S-shaped heat pipes protruding the heatsink. Along with those, you also can see the single 6-pin PCIe power connector and SLI connector.
The outputs seem slightly excessive on a card of this specification, but if you want a cheap multi-monitor option; this lends itself well. You have the option of DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI to connect your monitor(s).
