Summary: i used this board in an arch linux based htpc / nas server. this little mobo runs 1080p video like a champ via xbmc! i was not disappointed by the network streaming speeds either! the vanilla linux kernel (3.15.5-2) supports every mode i has used so far. for the price, this board is awesome!
Summary: I used this motherboard to make a low power computer for serving the web and other low end task to keep the ware and tear off my main gaming computer. Also with clever fan setup you can have an almost silent computer.
Summary: Got this up and running quickly, with 4 GB Ram, 1 TB HDD (had that lying around), DVD drive. Ubuntu 13.1 desktop loaded easily. May load server and use this to build a small NAS, possibly with added 4xSata RAID card. I paid 70.00 and notice the price just went up by 18. Still a good value.
Summary: I returned two Gigabyte motherboards purchased from Amazon. Both were DOA and I was quite disappointed. This also happened to be back in 2010 where I purchased again from Amazon two Intel boards which were DOA again.
