Summary: It is quite amazing to see what Gigabyte brings to the table for roughly 80 EUR. Now granted, if you where planning dual-graphics cards, this is a no-no due to the limitations of the chipset. However, being B75 chipset based this motherboard has everything you need from 6 Gbps SATA ports, USB 3.0 ports and of course an improved and enhanced audio solution that is based on the Realtek ALC 868 codec. But lets not forget the included Gigabit jack.
