Shipped with the new AMD AM2+/AM2 socket, the Asus M3A78-EM allows you to elevate your rig beyond the standard limits with support for the Phenom FX/Phenom/Athlon 64 FX/Athlon 64 X2 and 45nm AMD Phenom II processors. Install up to 8GB of DDR2 memory 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.

The board features the AMD 780G chipset with an integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics adapter. A PCI-Express x16 slot lets you add additional graphics horsepower, and supports ATI's Hybrid CrossFireX technology and DirectX 10, as well as HDMI output – letting you display your video on any HD flat-screen television. Because high-end video deserves equally high-end audio, you'll get 8 channels of HD audio.

Besides the PCI-Express x16 lane for the Hybrid CrossFireX, there is also a PCI-Express and 2 PCI slots for further system enhancements. Storage won't be a problem with five SATA 3Gb/s connectors.
