Not sure what you folks are surprised about. What kind of accessories do you want with a GPU, exactly? My 980 Ti came with a CD and one of those 6->8 pin things that no one ever uses. I think that was about it. Maybe a useless DVI->VGA adapter.

A GPU doesn't need to come with much. I find it nice that they're at least including the IO shield with the motherboard. A lot of open box or secondhand deals don't include those. Power cables with a PSU is kind of a given. They cost a lot to buy on their own. If they didn't include them it would be a terrible value.

This is the original Titan so for 400 bucks its not a good deal at all compared to cards you can get now. A brand new 970 can be had be for around 80-100 bucks cheaper and comes with a game and is a faster card than the original Titan.

I think you missed the point of what it didn't come with, namely "Graphics Card: None"
I bolded, underlined, and italicized the important part.

You can only really mess up the meaning of what they're saying here through very deliberate misinterpretation.

I agree if you are talking gaming. The big thing with the original Titan was the double precision floating point power.
Look at the Folding@home double precision results here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/9059/the-nvidia-geforce-gtx-titan-x-review/15

I did think it might be a joke but honestly the truth was so obvious that it came off as not even being remotely amusing to me. "They couldn't possibly be making a joke here...." is what ran through my head. >_>
