The bundle that comes with the Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe is actually very decent.  The bundle includes SATA, IDE and floppy drive cables, the Asus cool mempipe, two crossfire bridge cables, SATA power connectors, a firewire/USB header, a fan for the chipset, the WiFI omni directional antenna the backplate, and the typical documentation along with a driver/app CD.
