The bundle for the TForce 550 board is very sparse in terms of hardware. Upon opening the box you are greeted with the sight of Biostar's trademark Black Bag which is a Nylon bag that holds all the components of the motherboard bundle. A single SATA cable and Power cable is included, allowing the user to get started with their new motherboard. I would have preferred Biostar to have included at least two SATA cables, to allow the user to RAID two drives, but this is a low-cost board and not all the amenities can be included.
