The ABIT AW9D is an easy to tweak, simple, efficient, and future-proof (Quad-core ready) motherboard. Ready for Intel's i975x chipset, it makes full use of the latest developments offered by the CPU. With an integrated µGuru chip, and ABIT EQ, OC Guru, FlashMenu and BlackBox applications managed through a user-friendly interface, you get unprecedented performance and stability. ABIT's new Guru Clock provides overclocking and hardware monitoring status without entering Windows-based utilities. Two PCI-E X16 slots let you pair two ATI graphic cards in CrossFire mode for Dual-GPU power-gaming. It supports a massive 8 Gigabytes of screaming dual-channel DDR2 800 memory.
A PCI-E Gigabit LAN controller supports 10/100/1000M Ethernet and eliminates the need for an add-on LAN card. The included AudioMAX card provides high-definition, low-interference 7.1-channel Dolby Master audio. OTES (Outside Thermal Exhaust System) Cooling Technology, wider heatsinks, and PWM layout and placement help in preventing the overheating by providing efficient heat dissipation.
This is a great full-featured board ideal for the first-time builder or experienced system developer. With enough room for supporting graphics and sound cards, and more than enough connectors for your box, you have a world of gaming opportunity before you!
