For those who prefer good price/performance ratio and AMD Athlon 64-bit processors-- the vK8T800a-LF. 

The new motherboard is designed to be installed with CPUs which are built with 754 pins such as Athlon 64-bit or Sempron processors.  “This architecture makes the model very competitive,” says Edward Chen, channel manager of the Platform Development Division.

“DIY enthusiasts, students, or users who look for low cost solutions would love to have such a system,” Chen elaborates. 

Despite its competitive pricing, the motherboard is still designed with good features.  For example, the motherboard’s built-in Cool’n’Quiet functionality supports three DIMMs while similar systems on the market only support one DIMM memory module. Three double data rate (DDR) memory modules of 400/333 MHz can be installed to the memory slots of the system.

The system’s memory can be expanded to 3GB which is more than enough for ordinary users.   

One of the other strong features of the product is its support to high definition 7.1-channel surround audio output port. While the system comes with all standard personal computing functions, it can be used as a home entertainment system which can play high definition digital music.    

Because the motherboard uses VIA K8T800 and VT8237 chips, the system requires no cooling fan. 

The motherboard is designed with one AGP 8X slot and four PCI slots. 

It provides two Serial ATA slots and four IDE slots for installation of hard drives.  The Serial ATA interface supports RAID 0 and RAID 1 hard drive configuration. 

In addition to the 7.1-channel surround sound port, the rear panel provides four USB connectors, one RJ45 LAN connector, one COM port, one printer port, and two PS/2 connectors. The other four USB 2.0 connectors are built on-board and connected to two USB headers. Two 1394 connectors are also built on-board. 

The motherboard is built with an S/P DIF Output header. The output of Sony/Philips digital audio interface circuitry (S/P DIF OUT) can be connected to a digital audio amplifier to generate 7.1 surround sound and Dolby Digital audio effects which turns your home into an entertainment center.

The motherboard has a size (form factor) of 305 mm by 220 mm.
