"The MSI Computer P965 Platinum motherboard is one such candidate with a healthy dose of enthusiast friendly features to match. The MSI P965 Platinum utilizes the Intel P965 Express Northbridge and Intel ICH8R Southbridge chipsets. It supports all Socket 775 processors that operate on a 1066/800/533MHz FSB. This includes the Intel Core 2 Duo/Extreme, Pentium 4/D/XE and Celeron D to name just a few. Standard equipment includes an Intel PCI Express based Gigabit network card, IEEE 1394a, a Realtek 7.1 channel Intel Azalia High Definition audio controller and an additional Serial ATA II/IDE RAID (0,1,0+1) controller. There are seven 3GB/s SATA connections and one IDE channel. Expansion is possible through a PCI Express x16 slot, one PCI Express Lite slot (in yellow, PCI-E x4 transfer rates), two PCI Express x1 slots and two 32 bit PCI slots for legacy devices."
