      HT 2000
    AMD64 technology provides simultaneous support for 32-bit and 64-bit computing with 2000MT/s system bus HyperTransport technology.
     
      Dual core
    Outperforms single-core processors on most multithreaded applications while running at lower clock speeds and consuming less power.
     
      Dual Channel DDR2 800
    Doubles the bandwidth of your system memory up to 12.8GB/s and pumps up the system performance.
     
      PCI Express
    PCI Express Lite is an ECS patent design. To make use of the PCI Express interface, it can not only upgrade the expansion of PCI-E x16 graphics card but also support the Quad-Display function.
     
      Serial-ATA II
    Doubles the transfer speed of SATA, running at speed up to 3.0Gb/s, and fully compatible with the soon-to-be-released SATA HDD, CD-ROM and other cutting-edge devices.
     
      8 Channel High Definition Audio
    Integrated 8-channel HD Audio CODEC delivering advanced multi-channel audio and bringing you the experience of home theater-quality sound.
     
      Giga LAN
    Delivers transfer speed ten times faster than conventional 10 / 100 Ethernet connections, supporting a high transfer rate up to Gigabit/s. Gigabit LAN is the networking standards for the future and is ideal for handing large amount of data such as video, audio, and voice.
     
      DVI Output
    A video interface standard designed to maximize the visual quality of digital display devices such as flat panel LCD computer displays and digital projectors. DVI transmits a digital signal from a digital location in the graphics card to a digital location on the display screen. So you get the full clarity and stability of liquid crystal technology — with sharp, clear pixels.
     
      Certified For Windows Vista
    The latest generation Microsoft O.S., delivers better personal productivity and digital entertainment on your PC through its improved reliability, security, and performance.

    Question
    During Vista installation process, sometimes the Setup can't find the HDDs & I got the error message "This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk". 


    Answer
    It is a known issue of Microsoft Vista because it cannot distinguish between ambiguous hard disks. You can refer to the article in the link(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925481/en-us) for details & follow it's instructions below to see if they help.
    1. Create one or more partitions on all the hard disks that are not initialized.
    2. Restart the computer.
    3. Install Windows Vista.
