Abit AN78GS


Continuing a tradition of quality computer circuit boards, Abit introduces the AN78GS, a motherboard that should support everything that the majority of computer users will ever need. It supports AMD Phenom (AM2/AM2+ socket) processors and it is capable of supporting more hard drives than most would need, enough PCI slots for all necessary peripherals, as well as an ATA-100 connector and a connector for a floppy drive, of which you may have read about in your history books.

The packaging is that which you can normally expect when unpacking your shiny new motherboard. It is without cushioning but snug, with the contents organized to avoid a lot of movement during shipping. The box itself presents attractive artwork that could easily catch a consumer's eye while sitting on the shelf.

Included with the motherboard are a driver CD, two SATA cables, a power adapter to convert a Molex style connector to a SATA power plug, an IDE cable, case plate, and the standard manual. The power adapter and IDE cable are pleasant to see included, only because there is a lot of legacy equipment that continues to be serviceable, such as my IDE-based optical drive.
