Bundles

A basic bundle should include the following items: User Manual, CD with drivers and utilities, a DVI-to-VGA adapter, a DVI-to-HMDI adapter (except for the GTX 295), a component output adapter (TV-Out), HDMI audio cable (for GeForce cards), and external power splitters. And now let's see what other accessories are bundled with each card.


ASUS ENGTX295 (GeForce GTX 295) 2x896MB

A complete basic bundle plus a leather CD case.

ASUS ENGTX285 TOP (GeForce GTX 285) 1024MB

A complete basic bundle plus a leather mouse pad.

ASUS ENGTX285 Ultimate (GeForce GTX 285) 1024MB

The same bundle.

ASUS EAH4870 MATRIX (RADEON HD 4870) 512MB

Packages


ASUS EAH4870 MATRIX (RADEON HD 4870) 512MB

These graphics cards come without packages, like OEM, but the company invented original boxes for such cases.

ASUS EAH4850 MATRIX (RADEON HD 4850) 512MB

The same situation. In this case the cards are not protected from damages in transit, of course, so you can hope only that they were packed well in a large box.

ASUS ENGTX295 (GeForce GTX 295) 2x896MB

We've already written that the company decided to radically revise graphics card packages. Farewell to huge boxes with handles! In our opinion, it's an ideal way to deliver graphics cards. This package is not very big, but all bundled components are arranged into black boxes with company logos. The card is secured in a foamed polyurethane box, CDs and manuals are stored in another box, and cables/adapters in the third.

ASUS ENGTX285 TOP (GeForce GTX 285) 1024MB

The same box.

ASUS ENGTX285 Ultimate (GeForce GTX 285) 1024MB

No comments, the same package, only labels differ.
