Summary: Some would say the old 760 series chipsets from AMD's Phenom days are simply too outdated, but you know what...if it ain't broke, don't replace it! This board may be an old timer to some, but it still does its job well at a great price with exceptional reliability. You'll sacrifice more newer features such as USB 3.0 and SATA III, but you can easily get around this. Pop-in an add-on card and you can get both.
Good motherboard for the price if you don't care about not having a lot of expansion

Summary: I just got this Mobo two days ago and so far things seem to be working fine. I reused my existing E-Machines w-3410 case and most everything else in it to save cost. I paired the board with a AMD Athlon II X3 450 95W Processor (ADX450WFGMBOX) and 4 GB of Kingston Technology HyperX Blu 2 GB 1333 (PC3 10666) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM. I could have went for more memory but since I currently have 32 bit Windows 8, it would have been wasted. Overall, I am happy with the performance.
Summary: Decent budget board. Has more sata ports that you'd probably need on a board this price. I have yet to have a problem with gigabyte mobos and still have a ten year old one running an athalon here somewhere.
Pros: Good price, lots of sata ports, old IDE port, USB 3
Summary: Got one of these to replace a dead MB. Nicely laid out and it has 4 memory slots instead of the usual 2. So, a few weeks later when I needed a board for another PC, I ordered another one. Not sure if it was bad Quality Control or mishandled in shipping, but the board would not boot up. Ordered a replacement and sent the first board back. The next one came with no air pillows inside the outer box.
Summary: It works astounding. It looks great feels great it's newest version "v 5.0". You will have difficulty getting a good power supply unit. My pc specs: 8gb ram 500gb Hdd Xion meshed case 460PSU Gigabyte 78lmt (This) No gfx card atm.
Summary: This board was actually really nice. I usually use Asus boards, but this one was more of what I needed for this particular build. Plenty room for expansion, and a well laid out motherboard. Highly recommended, everything worked like a champ, Didn't have to tweak any of the bios settings. It was great right out-of-the-box! hopefully it'll last a long time.
