    New bargain AM2+ motherboard??

    I just saw this motherboard on Scan for under £35:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=1097139

    It has the 780G chipset and 128mb of RAM for the IGP,the SB710 southbridge and solid capacitors in the VRM too. The motherboard also has 6 SATA ports and has PCI-E 2.0 16x and 1x slots.

    Edit!!

    The motherboard seems to have ACC enabled:

    Solid caps o the VRM is fairly standard, all solid caps on an mATX board is more uncommon.
    But it's a nice looking board at a very nice price, looks like it's 4 phase too.

    Nice SATA layout too, 3 above a potential graphics card and the other 3 well below it, so should be clear with a 2 slot card in there.
