Powerful motherboard, but acting strangely after 3 years of use.

Summary: Still working after a few years of use and upgrades to memory, but strange things have sometimes occurred like losing connections with hard drives. It was a value when I bought it but I can't be sure of its durability, and with the weird hard disk disconnections (esp. upon restarts from sleep) it makes me wonder if I will buy another Gigabyte board in the future. Still it has worked for a about 3 years so I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Summary: My Home theater at my living room is my PC, using this board. I am very pleased with its performance, running Win7 x64, Windows Media Center and some other softwares, I am using an AMD Phenom II X4 945 and it works like a charm, to play music, photo presentations and, specially, watching TV, playing video files, DVD and Blu-ray discs. Nice performance on USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0! For common video, the embedded GPU is just perfect, with hardware decoding, Dolby Digital, etc.
