  • Excerpt: I have an old Pentium 166 MMX that my brother kindly donated to me when he moved out to buy his flat. I was never really into computers much before that. Still, I have learnt a lot through his tuition and now count myself as competant at pc upgrades and maintenance.

  • Excerpt: I had a an Pentium MMX PC and wanted to upgrade the motherboard and CPU and keep everything else. I also required the motherboard to be in AT format, otherwise it won't fit in my casing. This was the best choice. So far, the motherboard has worked flawlessly.

  • Excerpt: Yes the GA5AA is a good value motherboard, I built one of my PC's and one for someone else using the same. As boards go this one was easy to setup except for the placing of the IDE cables as they have to go right accross the top of the CPU cooling fan( the ones supplied with the board are not long...

  • Excerpt: I was in a hurry, and bought a GA5-AA, AT form. I'm using a K6-2 500MHz; at present an ATI rage fury 128 pro 32Mb(AGP), and prior to that, a MATROX G200 AGP; 192Mb RAM (recently upgraded from 64). The manual is 'ok', but the info on the bios settings is a joke.

  • Excerpt: I've recently upgraded my old 386 computer, and I was looking for the cheapest but best options (if you see what I mean). When it came to the motherboard, I chose Gigabyte's GA-5AA board.

  • Excerpt: Dieses Mainboard ist das beste was ich kenne. Mit dem Bios kommt man gut klar und das jummpern der CPU ist dank, Benutzerhandbuch und Boardschrift, Kinderleicht. Durch dieses Board weiss ich jetzt richtig wie man eine cpu jummpert. Das Board ist bis 550MHZ auslastbar!!? Es läuft stabil.
  • Pros: Alles
  • Cons: nichts
