No problem except for the fact there are 5 sata connection yet only 2 cables were provided.

Great board, will buy again. The 780G chipset has great power management features and for an IGP, good graphics too. AM2+ leaves you with room for upgrade in the future and 5 SATA ports (with RAID) lets you connect many disks!

This is an excellent board. The integrated graphics amazed me! I could play Call of Duty 4 on medium settings (No AA / AF, 1280x1024) at 20-40fps. This is definitely one of the best motherboards for the price (under $90). If you're looking for a budget AMD machine that has decent HD video playback and graphics, this is DEFINITELY the motherboard for you. I recommend buying a hd3450 or 3470 Graphics Card to Hybrid Crossfire with the integrated card if you are going to be playing any sort of games (the 3470 is only $73 atm, and provides a huge increase in performance)
