Unfortunately, GIGABYTE sent the bare board with a Driver CD. While this allowed us to run our tests, it didn't allow me to look at the hardware bundle. Generally, GIGABYTE tends to include such things as SATA cables for each port, a USB bracket or two and more, so it's safe to assume they will do the same with this motherboard.

The Driver CD had the full gamut of software that GIGABYTE includes with their motherboards. The Xpress Installer allows you to install the drivers with a single click of the mouse button or install them one by one. Norton's Internet Security 2006 is the latest version of Symantec's antivirus and Firewall software. EasyTune is GIGABYTE's overclocking tool. There are two modes, Easy and Advanced. Easy overclocks the CPU by a small margin. Advanced allows you to change the various settings individually and is better for higher overclocking environments.
