XFX really went the extra mile with their video card bundle for the 9800 GTX card. The card comes with a free copy of Company of Heroes, THQ's latest squad game. The game is based upon DirectX 9.0 graphics but still is a great game that was on the top 10 games of 2007. There is a DirectX 10 version of the game included allowing the new video card owner to play and experience the features of their new card.

The 6-pin power connector is necessary for those that don't have two 6-pin power connectors on their Power Supply. Note, that I would strongly recommend buying a more powerful PSU if you don't have 6-pin power connectors included on the PSU as that likely means it is a low power PSU without the necessary power for the new video card.

The inclusion of a HDMI to DVI adapter is an excellent addition as new monitors sometimes have the new HDMI Interface and the adapter allows the new monitor to operate with the standard DVI connector on the video card. Legacy D-Sub support is provided by the two included adapters, allowing those with analog CRT monitors to use this card.
