ASUS always provides a bundle that covers all the needed parts and software to get up and going with, and in the case of the M2N32-SLI Deluxe we see that same pattern apparent. There is nothing super outstanding or really great about the bundle, it just is a complete package. There are no additional software applications other than an OEM version of some Anti-Virus software, which is okay, but at least a little real virus protection would be nice. I have always felt that including trial versions of software was a lame idea, especially virus protection that draws a user in with the lure of FREE-TRIAL VERSION, and then forces him to buy that protection at best or have major software dilemmas at worst. Everything you need hardware wise that relates specifically to the board is included. Includes in the retail box are things such as cables, brackets, and installation software.
