Features Before we begin with the technology overview let's have a look what's inside the box. In the box we'll find a very nice looking mainboard with a plethora of gadgets which show the immense detail Gigabyte put into this package. Included with the mainboard are
IDE cables, 1x floppy cable, 2x USB + 2x FireWire port cable, Audio combo kit (SPDIF), SATA cable, SATA cable x1 and a power cable, the wireless module+antenna+cable. Included software next to the standard drivers and tools is Norton Internet Security, Norton Anti Virus, Norton Personal Firewall, Norton Privacy Control, Norton Parental Control and Ad Blocking. Next to all this, several manuals for the mainboard, quick install guide, and manuals for the controllers can be found. All of them quite detailed and very helpful. Very nice package if you ask me.
Seriously, you get heaps of stuff with the GA-8IPE1000 Pro2-W
