Foxconn A74GA with SATA hard drives?

Hello,
I am planning on building my own PC but I came across an A74GA AMD 740G Socket AM3 ATX Motherboard w/Video, Audio, Gigabit LAN & RAID. I was looking at all the specifications and I didn't see anything on whether it accepted SATA's or not just IDE's and this thing was really cheap so I just hoping that maybe someone could tell me if they work or not since IDE's are twice as much.
P.S this is not really in the sub-category Corsair it wouldn't let me not pick one.

    that's great but it still seems too good to be true do you know why it would only be $50?
  3. Foxconn is one of the standard suppliers to the likes of Dell, HP, Microsoft and a quite few others but, that motherboard is old technology (new AMD's are AM3+ or FX) and is most likely an overrun. BTW, now it's $40 on amazon
  4. thx you were alot of help :)
  5. do you have a favorite brand or mobo that you could refer me to, but it has to be easily accessible i live in china so there isn't many online companies that will ship to me accept amazon, maybe, no joke

    Best to start a new question with the following information...
    How much do you want to spend for the motherboard?
    Do you want to add a graphics card or even two or three?
    What do you use your computer for?

    With that information, you should get a lot of responses

    Well, the american dollar is 6.3 times more valuable than the chinese yuan and most mobo's that are $150 are 150 yuan that's like thirty buck's so the price is not a problem, I can find most large brands here; Gigabyte, Sapphire, Asus, etc. and i'm going for a mid grade to high end gaming computer, any suggestions?
  8. I really like my Asus Maximus ROG (Republic of Gamers) board. I can XFire my 7950 later if I choose, has overclocking options (making it a little "future-proof), and has a debug led all on a micro-ATX board.
    What processor are you looking to go with... that'll make a difference also.
