Foxconn's A79A-S ATX motherboard delivers powerful computing and graphics. Based on AMD's 790FX and SB750 chipsets, it is ideal for the home or business user who relies on top video performance. Certified for Windows Vista, it supports AMD's AM2 Phenom multi-core processors as well as all other socket AM2 CPUs. Up to 8GB of DDR2 memory can be installed with dual channel support to power through complex operations and Hyper Transport 3.0 technology massively increases the CPU bandwidth at lower power levels for cooler operation.

Four PCI Express 2.0 slots support CrossfireX technology to deliver maximum horsepower to challenging graphics challenges. The results can be delivered via optical or coaxial outputs. Top-notch graphics require equally powerful audio, so the onboard Realtek ALC888SDD chipset delivers 8 channels of audio with support for DTS Connect and Dolby Digital Live along with the ability to split two different sound sources.

A FireWire and six USB 2.0 ports give you the flexibility to expand and enhance your system while the SATA and eSATA connectors let you achieve high-speed data transfers with no bottlenecks. Integrated Gigabit Ethernet LAN lets you connect to other systems on your network at broadband speeds.
