    ASUS slipped in no less than three value micro-ATX motherboards based on the AMD 760G + SB710 chipset. Two of these, the M4A78L-M LE, M4A78L-M use socket AM2+ to connect to existing AM3 and older AM2(+) processors supporting DDR2 memory, while a third one, the M4A78LT-M LE uses AM3 socket to support AM3 processors and DDR3 memory. All three feature ASUS exclusive features such the EPU (energy processing unit), ExpressGate instant-on OS, and a ‘Turbo-key’ push-button overclocking feature. All three are to an extant similar, in having two DIMM slots for dual-channel memory, one each of PCI-Express x16, x1, and two PCI, and have an ATI Radeon HD 3000 class IGP.

    The differences start with the M4A78L-M LE and M4A78LT-M LE being more office-oriented, with display connectivity being confined to D-Sub, or DVI, presence of legacy serial and parallel ports, a simpler 6-channel audio, and 4-phase CPU VRM, while retaining essential connectivity of the southbridge, including six SATA 3 Gbps ports, and one IDE connector for running two ATA devices. The M4A78L-M is slightly more consumer / home-user oriented, with better display connectivity that includes D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI, 8-channel audio with optical SPDIF output, and a slightly more powerful 4+1 phase VRM. The M4A78L-M LE, M4A78L-M and M4A78LT-M LE are priced at £42.42, £47.87 and £51.68, respectively.

    The title says 760G, but the name of the models suggest "78". So, which one is it?

    I just want to add that anything below the 780G won't have UVDs in the onboard GPU, so these aren't suitable for HTPCs.

    Its Asus, their naming is always confusing
    They even name their 790 boards "78" :nutkick:

    The one on the left would be good for my parents file/print server. They still use a 1980's Panasonic KX-P1624 dot matrix printer (parallel port) to do 3-part carbon copy statements for their business. The printer even has Windows 7 support, despite being 20+ years old. :D

    Not from our side. They named it so, while using 760G.
