Summary: it has a qualcom nic instead of realtek limited cpu compatibility could not use AMD FX 4-Core Black Edition FX-4300 with it pros: price 6 sata ports vga and dvi other thoughts: put 8gb of ram a sempron 45w processor and 6 sata disks and this could be a decent NAS machine.
Summary: Another great price for a quality product from Gigabyte. Installed into with an AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition and it works like a charm. Easy install. Easy fit into a mid to large size case. Will buy again from Gigabyte. Can't go wrong with this product.
Summary: If you are ordering this for a PC build, please beware it does NOT! support 125w CPUs. I made the mistake of not doing proper research since the page here doesn't explain it and now my CPU is being limited since it's a 125w. So, if that's what you're buying it for, find another one. If you have a 95w CPU, this is a great motherboard.

Summary: Purchased this motherboard as a combo unit that included an AMD processor. As far as the actual installation in a ''build'' machine goes (I'm not a noobie), it was quick, easy and flawless. The problem arose when installing Linux and no network connection could be found. Checked all that could be checked --OK --Resort to Google for answers.
Summary: Pros: - nice form factor - supports both AM3 and AM3+ cpu - Gigabyte = good quality (I have a desktop running on Gigabyte MB for more than 10 years, and it's still running) Cons: - you can't find the arrow indicating the correct orientation of your cpu on the CPU socket. (I spent 10 minutes and still couldn't find it) - only two RAM slot - The space is really crowded if you add your video card - Front panel out sockets are everywhere on the board, cable management a real...
