Default Question about A7N8X deluxe

I am looking into getting the ASUS A7N8X deluxe version and I had a question or two about it.

I keep seeing it advertised with Serial ATA. Does this mean it doesn't include regular parallel ATA connectors on the board, or does it have both?

The reason I want the deluxe version is for the 2 LAN ports on-board.

Yes it does have both. I am very sure that it has the two ata-133 ports provided by the chipset

The chaintech board actually has 3 ata-133 and 2 serial ata's on it, but no dual lan a decent lan card isnt over $20 USD anyway

Cool.

I have more LAN cards than I care to count so that isn't a big deal. The fact that I can have both on board though is nice and frees up some PCI slots, not to mention making airflow in the case a little better.

However 3 ATA ports begs the question:

Does that mean I can theoretically have 4 HDDs and 2 CD(dvd/cd-rw/whatever) drives?

Yep. 2 of the ports are from the chipset (nforce 2) and one is from the promise controller. The promise controller also supplies the 2 onboard s-ata ports, but only one drive at a time can be attached to those The chaintech board has firewire too, but its on a riser card. I kinda like it myself





sorry about the lack of punchtuation, but im not being real picky about my writing style today
