EVGA went all out with the motherboard bundle, giving the end-user everything needed to get started. The 6 SATA cables and three SATA power cables brings the total out of the box to 6, the maximum supported by the chipset and the board. The Firewire cable brings the total supported on the board to two, with the other on the rear panel I/O. One nice addition to the bundle is a 4-port USB bracket that brings the total supported out of the box to 10. A FDD and an IDE cable round out the bundle of the EVGA nForce 780i SLI board.

The Driver CD contains the drivers for the nForce 780i chipset, the manual for the motherboard, audio drivers for the motherboard, the Floppy creation wizard and Adobe Acrobat PDF. In terms of software this is enough to get the motherboard installed but nothing else. Vista and XP drivers are on the CD. As every computer sold today has Windows Vista on it, the inclusion of XP drivers is for those that want to use this board with the old OS.
