Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI nForce4-SLI
The Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI is built around the popular nVidia nForce4-SLI chipset. This board supports socket 939 Athlon64 and AthlonFX processors, as well as up to 4GB of PC3200 DDR RAM in a dual channel configuration. The board features an onboard four port SATA/RAID Silicon Image controller, two Gigabit NICs, one wireless 802.11g PCI network card, a 7.1-channel audio controller, three IEEE 1394b ports, Gigabyte's DPS-2 power system, and of course dual BIOS'. The GA-K8NXP-SLI also has two PCIe x1 slots as well as two standard PCI slots. Finally if that weren't enough already, the nForce4-SLI MCP supports the new Serial ATA II standard for up to 3Gb/s of HDD goodness on four channels. A pretty well rounded motherboard I'd say, wouldn't you?
