Summary: SO UPDATE:: IO have Had to RMA this board twice now they keep "fixing" and returning. I got thge board back a 3rd time about a month ago finally gOt to put it in and its STILL DEAD, I SENT IT BACK BECAUSE it was dead... GIGA you are about to lose me as a customer.
Pros: was fast
Cons: keep burning out, have RMAed 3 times since purchase. 3rd time was DOA still when I got it back

Cons: It is priced higher than AMD but it definitely runs my game smoother.

An inexpensive sound card was a better solution for me. One little issue on one board shouldn't count against the product unless others h...
