Summary: At first I had several issues with this board – issues that turn out to be a simple user error. Since then I have built a new gaming system utilizing this board; the system works flawlessly. It works so well that I doubt I will have to do ay major upgrades for at least the next 5 years.
Summary: I wrote a review earlier where I objected to the shaky quality and long RMA time for this board. Well as it turns out I was very wrong. I ordered another make motherboard from NewEgg (naturally) and experienced the same type of failure problems I had with the Gigabyte.
Summary: bought this board after i got a Foxconn motherboard based on via kt600 cipset that was really us=nstable and also imcompatible with my vid card. this one works a lot bettter, but not good for overclocking.
Summary: I build PC's for customers who want something other than plan jane pc. I ordered this board because my customer wanted an AMD XP platform. We ordered all of our parts from NewEgg naturally. The motheerboard ran just over ten hours before it quite recognizing the sata drive.
Summary: First of all, once you get this board up and running it works out very well, but getting there may be tricky. I re-used an athlon xp 2500+ and for a while it was only reading as 1.1ghz and not 1.8 .
Summary: Great motherboard for the price and just an overall good value. Had a much harder time as this motherboard significantly raised the temperatures in my case, but nothing that couldn't be solved.
