Summary: I picked this board since I didn't want the legacy stuff. Don't know why companies till the past year now have been supplying us with this old stuff we don't even use. This board has zero parallel printer, serial port, serial gaming port, IDE and the rest of the stuff we don't need.
Summary: I have been using this board combine with E8400 for a HTPC for 6 months now. I am very happy with it. It handle all the HD movies file I want to play and the integrated graphic card can handle pretty much what ever format I throw at.
Summary: I recently built a new system. Here is a quick run down of the specs: - This motherboard - Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz (board also supports Core 2 Quad chips) - 4GB RAM (x2 2GB sticks) - Linksys Wireless PCI - Firewire PCI - 450W PSU - Antec mATX Case - x2 500GB Seagate HDD (SATA) - DVD-R/RW & CD-R/RW...
Summary: I am on my 4th RMA. Gigabyte RMA takes a long time to cycle returned product. Two boards were DOA, one had audio and one ran for a week and then died. Other than audio, I think the documented heating problem w/ chipset is killing board. this will be the last Gigabyte product I will ever buy.
