The contents of the box sometimes make the product more attractive to the potential buyer, although less goodies also can come in handy because you can now make your video card sharper priced then many other competitor in today's crowded video card market. Sparkle definitely went for the latter, although you will find all the essential extra equipment added inside the box.
