This is too old, anymore.

  • Summary: Forget these old chipset motherboards, and get something, w/ no onboard graphics, and put a video card in there (one of your choosing.) You will be glad u did. Not recommended, this old 965 intel chipset. (boo.)

Good board for beginners, terrible lifespan, aging chipset

Splambaster, Amazon
3 January 2008
  • Summary: This board was great when I first built a desktop. The chipset was a good combo for low-speed emulated disk access, thanks to the cheap ICH8 chipset, and the P965 was decent for dual channel RAM. The board overclocked well, and lasted for a while.

Not a good choice for overclocking

mrnikkel "Matt", Amazon

  • Summary: Do not buy this mobo if you plan on overclocking your system. There is an issue with this particular model that causes some of them to reset to factory settings if any sort of external USB storage is plugged in upon start up.

Easy Installation And Flawless Performance.

  • Summary: When you build your own computer you know that the motherboard is the backbone of any system. Knowing that, reliability and ease of use is of primary concern. The Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 has both of those features.

  • Summary: Last August I stepped into the world of build your own system. Im totally brain dead when it comes to computer parts and putting things together. I have a habit of taking things apart and having no clue how to put it back together.

Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3

Estuansis, AfterDawn.com

  • Summary: This board is a bit older now, but still an excellent overclocker for even quads. Got it for $99 at newegg probably a year and a half ago. It is nearly identical to the GA-P35-DS3L. Same onboard audio, board layout, colors, BIOS, everything.
