The GV-NX76G256HI-RH - to give the card its full name - is passively cooled. The 12 pixel shader 7600 GS runs at 450MHz. The 256MB of DDR 2 video memory is clocked to 800MHz. In addition to the HDMI port, the board has a DVI port and and s-video connector. There's an HDMI-to-DVI adaptor in the box to support dual-link DVI.
