EVGA Releases nForce 730a Motherboard

NVIDIA has had a fair bit of success with its MCP7A, MCP79 chipsets. Where the Intel-compatible nForce 730i/740i embeds a GeForce 9300/9400-class IGP, the AMD compatible nForce 730a embeds a GeForce 8200-class IGP. EVGA has released its offering based on the 730a (model 113-M2-E113-TR). The motherboard uses the typical EVGA colour scheme. It has an AM2+ socket, supporting the latest AMD processors with the HyperTransport 3.0 system interface.

The board features a single PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot. It supports Hybrid Power with compatible graphics cards. Display output from its IGP comes in the form of DVI, D-Sub and HDMI connectors. It provides 8-channel audio with optical and coaxial SPDIF outputs. Depending on the processor used it supports DDR2 memory, with speeds of up to PC2-8500 (1066 MHz). The CPU is powered by a 5+1 phase power circuit. Six SATA II ports with RAID support are provided. For a complete list of specifications, please refer to the company whitepaper. The motherboard is available from the EVGA store for US $94.99 +shipping.

And to top it off I think they offer Lifetime Limited Warranty if you register within 30 days.

does this support AM2+ Denebs atleast?

Edit: Warranty is 1 yr I think.
Limited Lifetime Warranty is for all retail Graphics Card and Mainboard products ending in the part numbers A1, A3, AR, AX, BR*, BX*, DR, DX, FR, FX, SG, SL, or S2.
* [Replacement products are shipped out as BR or BX and will carry the same limited lifetime warranty that your original purchase had based on your registration.]
