Summary: I don't blame Gigabyte for the problems, things break it happens, I'm just disappointed as it was supposed to be a present for my kids.
Pros: Good overall layout Lots of external connections Upgradability
Cons: Won't allow any OS to use the full 8gb installed, crashes constantly during reboots, hangs when trying to get into the BIOS after a crash. It was a promising buy but disappointed me in the end. Will be ordering something else and tossing this in the bin.
Pros: First one was damaged in shipping. Newegg had a new one delivered before the old one was picked up. I only needed to call once! 5 stars for Newegg and Gigabyte, great light work inexpensive board.
