The packaging for the MSI GTX 1650 Gaming X wasn’t really a departure at all from what we have seen in the past with other Gaming X cards. The front of the box has a large photo of the card on it which I love. No more pointless artwork and now you can see exactly what card you are getting from the outside of the box. Below the card photo is the Gaming X branding, as well as a logo for the Twin Frozr 7 cooling design then, of course, the normal Nvidia wrap around which has the actual model name on it. The wrap around goes around on to the back as well where it talks about the GeForce Experience. MSI has more info on their Gaming X’s design on the back with a box showing the Torx 3.0 fans and the aerodynamics used in their Twin Frozr 7 cooler design. They also highlight the RGB LED on the top. There is a feature list and system requirements along with a very short specification listing that doesn’t really show anything important you might want to know. Card dimensions, display connections, VRAM size (which is shown), and clock speeds are the main things that would be nice to see in a retail environment.
Inside the card comes wrapped in a static protective bag and in a thick foam tray to keep it protected. There is then another layer of foam up on top and then a black envelope that holds the documentation. That has a quick user guide, MSI’s Lucky the Dragon cartoon that shows how to build a PC, two MSI coasters, and a driver disk.
