ASUS's hardware bundle on the AX 800XT gives you everything you need and more. The Power Adapter cable is necessary, especially since most PSU manufacturers don't as of yet include a PCI Express 6 pin adapter on their power supplies. The TV-Out cable is useful for connecting a big screen TV to your PC and playing games on the big screen. Asus also includes a WebCam. Honestly, if you're buying a high-end video card, a WebCam is probably the least likely feature you would concentrate on.

Ulead Cool3D 2.0 is a fun program that allows you to turn your text and shapes into 3d. You can do a text wave effect on text present in the latest of Cool 3D, version 3.5. Power Director is Cyberlink's video editing program. This allows you to change your videos that you use with the VIVO of the X600XT and make CDs with them.

Asus also includes several utilities with their video card. Game Face is Asus's take on a game setting utility. Smart Doctor monitors the clock speed and the PCI Express settings for the video card including voltage. The Video Security software allows you to use your video card as a security monitor when used with a camera.
