Included inside the box, with some of the stuff hidden away under the pull out tray, is the stuff that you may need to get the most out of your new card. The crossfire connector is given to you in case you may be wanting to get another one to run a dual card Crossfire setup, which might not be a bad idea considering the lower price yet good performance of the card. The manual that comes with the card will help those that are not familiar with replacing a graphics card. A driver install CD is included and I normally suggest that you do use the drivers that come with a just released card as the monthly drivers you get from the manufacture may not be up to date for the card.Also supplied is a Molex to six pin power adapter.
