  • Excerpt: The GA-965P-DS3 is Gigabyte's medium range Motherboard supporting all of Intel's Current processors as of 08/2007. The board was created using the Intel P965 Express North bridge and ICH8 South bridge chip sets. The ICH8 South bridge chip set has one drawback which is that it only supports SATA devices, with no support for IDE which is kind of a downside although SATA Hard Drives can be bought rather cheap nowadays and are much faster than IDE Drives.
  • Pros: Supports Quad Core, All Solid Capacitor Design, Good Overclocker
  • Cons: Has issues with certain RAM

  • Excerpt: Excellent board, supporting Core 2 Duo (Conroe) with a FSB (front side bus) of 1066 it's totally capable of running Core 2 at its top speed! The socket of this motherboard is 775, an Intel socket (the socket is where the processor sits in the motherboard, if the number on the motherboard doesn't match the CPU then they won't work together, i.e.
  • Pros: Quad core ready, Cheap, Safe
  • Cons: updating the Bios would be a good start to iron out some small issues

  • Excerpt: Support for LGA 775 and x16 PIC-E. The FSB can be pushed to way over 400 in most cases! I have to say I am very proud owner. Should the computer be pused to far then the bios will reset the FSB to whateva it was to start with (in my case 266 as I own a E6300) However the RAM is set at 1.8v so a cheap stick will be needed to boot the bios until you can raise the voltage yourself manually, Though there are no other problems at all!
  • Pros: Huge Overclocking Potential and supports new CONROE !
  • Cons: No SLI or Xfire support, 1 . 8v RAM
