XFX really went all out with their hardware bundle for their GeForce 9800GTX 1GB Black Edition card. The inclusion of two DVI-to D-Sub adapters and a HDMI to DVI adapter means that you can use their new monitors to full advantage. HDMI is the new monitor standard that replaced DVI in 2002 and is now used in HDTVs, computer monitors and other consumer electronics devices.

Game bundles are a lost art among video card companies with XFX being an exception to the rule that to save costs cut out the game from a video card bundle. XFX bundles their 9800GTX Black Edition card with the game Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. This is the latest in a line of COD games dating back a few years and is a good showcase of the graphics that a card like the 9800GTX can display. The European market gets Assassin's Creed, which was just released this month, but for now us USA gamers get COD4 MW.
