Connectivity. I think it is safe to say that we can leave the explanation of single and dual-link DVI behind us. It is good to see how much connectivity this card can deal with. With the Radeon HD 6770 series from ASUS we see three connectors -- we spot one DVI, an HDMI and an old fashioned analog DSUB (VGA) connector.
Let's zoom in a little. So the cooler is based on four thick 8mm heatpipes each leading to the GPU cooling block. Passive is never 100% passive though, as you WILL need some sort of airflow inside your chassis to move that heat away. So make sure you have an air intake and exhaust regulated by a fan -- create some airflow.
At the rear end of the card we spot (photo is incredibly dark though) one 6-pin power connector that feeds 75W to the card. The PCIe bus also delivers 75W.
