Great board for gaming modern games with older computers.

Summary: I did a LOT of digging before i bought this bord. The specs are wonderful for a LGA775 socket board! Gigabyte lan, usb 3.0, Supports DDR3 ram up to 16gb up to 2200! AND crossfire! Most i looked for only did one or other. Crossfire and up to 8gb DDR2 or non crossfire and 16gb DDR2. The cost savings of DDR3 alone make this a great value!
Summary: Im currently using my first build PC. And as you can see its working. Very easy to use and has loads of PCI and PCI-E slots. Ram was fine (Kingston 8GB) and AMD A8 Quad (amazon joked with me as its really a dual core with both cores doing two things at once...) Usb ports fine and I've had no problems. When making my PC i touched my radiator every not and again and no damage has occurred to the components. Overall 5 stars.
Summary: I bought this for a cheap office PC build, and paired it with an Athlon II X4 740. This board isn't the latest chipset (A85X and also A88x are later) but the differences seem to me to be minor, and this board is good for overclocking if that's your thing, and is also compatible with all the current AMD FM2 socket CPUs/APUs. It's a full size ATX board as I had a case that would fit it - plenty of space for several hard disks.
Summary: Love the colour scheme on this motherboard. For a budget board it has so many facilities only seen on higher end boards. From Sata-III on all ports , optical audio, triple monitor display , Usb 3.0 and for me what was most important for me was to have the 3 Pci slots to allow me to use older boards which is rare to find on any new board these days. The board itself has one of the most magnificent UEFI bios displays I have ever seen and is a real top quality overclocker.
Summary: This motherboard is very well laid out and has plenty of useful features. Full 7 expansion sockets and lots of Usb 3.0 sockets 8 in total! Handy Power and Reset switches on motherboard and also a clear cmos switch with the in/out sockets. Well made and clear instructions.
Summary: Got this board for an APU build for a friend and works a charm. OC'd some 1866MHz RAM to 2133MHz and still completely stable and good to go 24/7, would recommend for any new builder or experienced builder making an ATX FM2 system, really good expansion slots which are well thought out making for very good CrossFire/SLi (if you are using Nvidia cards) capabilities, build quality is excellent and to my astonishment the on board audio is not as cringe-worthy as many other...
Summary: This mobo is absolutely the best mobo for a gaming PC with an A10 5800k.great combo.Also it is overclock friendly,what I mean by that is that the bios and everything is just easy to use for a newbie.have no complaints. About the price what more can we ask for? In conclusion if you are looking for a motherboard that is cheap,reliable and has great performance than you are in the right place.
