(Question of experience) Does everyone receive all the proper cords when they get a new Graphics Cards?

Vonschuggle

Recently I decided on a new Sapphire 390x when I upgraded from my Zotac! GTX 960 and I noticed when I opened the box that I only received a single HDMI cord and the card, no power cables. My 960 came with the 6 pin it required for power however this one did not, I have a semi modular power supply and I stored all the cables I wasn't using with the 960 around a year ago somewhere and I could not find them so I had to order a new corsair 8 and 6+2 pig tail cable to power the card when I couldn't find the cable which was slightly annoying. So really is this consistent with other individuals upgrades and experiences or was I just terrible unlucky with loss of cables+video card choice???

 

Thank you for your replies.

From what I remember, all my GPU purchases have come with PCIE cables in the box.  In fact, I think my dual HD 7950 Vapor-X came with 2 each.  My 970 I think came with at least 1 8 pin?

QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

My cards have usually arrived with one or more splitters/extensions (2x6-pin to 8-pin or similar). No HDMI or SLI

Yeah

Judge a product on its own merits AND the company that made it.

Now that is really interesting even newer cards that you've ordered haven't come with an HDMI?

Yeah my cards (only nVidia) had power splitters and some adapters but never any cords to the display.

Thank you for your replies. 

Why didn't you just ask sapphire for the adapter, they'd probably send it for free. I don't recall getting one with my 780ti. Maybe they're assuming most people have newer PSUs by now ?

I don't recall getting power cables with any of my GPUs, mind you the last one I bought was about 6-7 years ago, they only ever come with VGA adapter, and crossfire link, and cd rom and instructions.

It's always seems BYO power cables, which makes sense that you supply your own so it suits YOUR psu, and they don't supply something you don't need.

I have 2x980's, none of them came with an HDMI cable. Only times I get an HDMI cable in the box is with monitors

SLI bridges come with motherboards

power cables come with PSU

display cables come with monitor

 

adapters (both display and power) come with GPU

 

Usually if you don't own the power cables it's a sign that your PSU is not compatible (or in your case you just lost the cables...)

Use of adapters should be avoided especially molex to pci-e

When I bought my GTX 460 5 years ago, it came with a mini HDMI cable (as this is what the card used... and I've never seen the port elsewhere) and some Molex to 4 pin adapters.  My recent purchase of a Sapphire R9 380 came with nothing but a DVI to VGA adapter.
