Main Features of the MSI NX6800GT
The NX6800GT is a lengthy card, built on red PCB, which is a hallmark of many of MSI's products. While many of today's higher-end cards can run extremely hot, requiring larger, louder heatsink/fan combos, the NX6800GT employs a single-slot copper heatsink that covers both the GPU and memory. As you can see, keeping with the "Game with MSI" motif, the fan and heatsink are both adorned with the same kind of catchy graphics we saw on the packaging. Along the top of the card is a small notch with a connector that's to be used for SLI. Generally speaking, it's preferable for two identical cards to be used, but in today's review we will be forgoing any kind of SLI testing, so we won't have to worry about that.
