Bundle

The basic bundle must include the following items: User's Manual, CD with drivers and utilities, DVI-to-VGA and DVI-to-HMDI adapters (for the 9800 GTX), component output (TV-Out) adapter (for the 9800 GTX), an external power splitter, and an audio cable to plug to a sound card (for audio HDMI feature). And now let's see what other accessories are bundled with each card.

A basic bundle, no bonuses.

Again, it's a basic bundle.

Boxes

Foxconn GeForce 9800 GTX 512MB

It's a small elongated box with laser patterns. The box has a flip lid that covers a window, which shows the card inside. Ironically, the box is initially wrapped in film, so you cannot see the card. That's strange, even silly. Why waste money on a more expensive box with plastic and a window, and then hide it.

All components are arranged into compartments inside. The card itself is secured in a plastic box, so dangling is out of the question.

It's the same box, only labels are different. Package contents are also different. The card is in the same plastic box inside the package.
