A basic bundle for such cards should include the following items: a user manual, a software CD, a CrossFire bridge, and power adapters. Now let's see what other accessories are bundled with each card.

Gigabyte GV-R587SO-1GD

This is a basic bundle, plus a DVI-to-VGA adapter.

PowerColor PCS+ HD5870 1GB GDDR5 (AX5870 1GBD5-PPDHG2)

This is a similarly basic bundle, plus Colin McRae: Dirt 2.


Gigabyte GV-R587SO-1GD

A traditional Super Overclock series box. The box is inside a glossy jacket. The bundle is stowed into compartments. The graphics card is stowed into a polyurethane foam box to avoid transportation issues.

PowerColor PCS+ HD5870 1GB GDDR5 (AX5870 1GBD5-PPDHG2)

A traditional vertical box. TUL is an avid supporter of cardboard, so no plastic packaging parts for you. The graphics card is so big (or the box is so small) that it hardly fits into its compartment. However, this also fixes the card securely for safe transportation.
