MSI tends to bundle their motherboards inside a white box and the 890GXM-G65 is no exception to that rule. A large orange G is on the left side of the box front with the name of the board on the middle right of the board. The CPUs supported by the board are listed on the top right hand corner along with the 890GX logo and the Designed for Windows 7 logo.

The bottom of the box front has the AM3 logo, Active Phase Switching, All Solid Capacitors and OC Speeder logos. HDMI, Nortonís and EuP logos are above that. The back of the box has the major features of the board including OC Speeder, HTPC Ready, Lossless audio, All Solid Capacitors, Heatpipe Design and Active Phase Switching.

Opening the box we find that MSI has included enough accessories to get the new computer user started. One SATA Data and Power cable are included. While I would have loved to have seen more SATA cables included, this keeps the costs of the board down to MSI. A cardboard separator holds the accessories on top of the box with the motherboard on the bottom. A copy of Nortonís Internet Security is included as part of the software bundle.
