ECS A780GM-A Motherboard Review – AMD 780G ChipsetFri, Apr 11, 2008 - 12:00 AM
The Retail Box and Bundle
The retail box that the ECS A780GM-A motherboard comes packaged in looks great and is fair from what one would expect at this price point. The glossy box is black with a dragon and a wicked looking tribal pattern that is better than what many women are sporting on their lower backs these days. On the lower right corner ECS has listed the main features available on the A780GM-A that are likely the reason you purchased it. The one feature they are missing that many might be interested in is the fact that the board has a x16 PCIe 2.0 graphics slot! Flipping over to the back reveals a picture of what the board looks like, as well as a more in depth list of specifications and features in nine different languages.
Included with the ECS A780GM-A “Black Series” motherboard are two SATA cables, one IDE cable, an I/O shield plate, support CD, quick start guide, users guide and an ECS “Black Series” case badge. The support CD software is simple to use and the software will install all the drivers with a click of a button. The bundle might leave some needing a floppy cable or an extra SATA cable, so keep this in mind when building systems running hard drives in a RAID configuration.
