The MSI K9A2 Platinum supports the latest AMD Phenom processors, Athlon 64/X2/FX and Sempron socket AM2/AM2+ processors. As with all newer motherboards few additional components are required to complete a functional machine. The required components are a socket AM2/AM2+ compatible CPU, DDR2 memory, video card, power supply and drives. MSI integrated the following components into the MA790FX-DQ6; 1 ATA 133 port, 1 floppy port, 8 SATA ports (4 SATA ports provided by the SB600, 4 via the Promise T3 controller 2 of which are eSATA and 2 are regular SATA), 10 USB ports (6 on the IO panel, 4 via USB headers), 1 GigE Ethernet port, 6 mini-headphone jacks, SPDIF/out, 1 optical port, and standard keyboard and mouse ports.Read on over here.
