Summary: This model has been discontinued, but if the new model is similar to this one then it ought to be pretty good. I chose this one for its many features, primarily those of my being able to run three monitors with an AMD A10 without the need for graphics cards, and its ability to be expanded with more...
Pros: Three video outputs, full-sized ATX, able to run two full-sized PCIE cards, very reasonable price, and I like the black color.
Cons: The first one that I received apparently had an intermittent problem of shutting off by itself, but the replacement MB is working fine.
Summary: I cant dog Gigabyte for one bad board as they have been pretty good to me over the years. I have had 2 bad boards from them out of maybe 8 boards I bought by them all of which were retail.
Pros: * Looks Nice * Onboard USB 3.0 * 8 SATA III Slots * 4x Memory Slots Supporting up to 64GB DDR3 * Nice Drivers & Software Disk Provided with Board
Cons: * Issues with Bios * Burnt Looking Spot on Board From the first day i bought this board I had issues with it. At first it was trying to get it to display on my 17" CRT monitor which to this day still doesn't show up properly size wise on my monitor so I am unable to see the menu options. The boar...
Summary: I had 2 boards from 2 different suppliers, 1 Amazon, 1 New egg. Neither board would POST. Returned both for refund. Purchased a different brand and immediately all was OK, but I lost over 2 weeks in my built trouble shooting power supply, processor and memory. Not a Gigabyte fan anymore.
Summary: Had to get a new board when my old CPU went south, so I selected this board to go with the AMD A8-5600 CPU I bought. First try with the Gigabyte boards as I've used Asus in the past, but didn't see any issues with the selection.
Pros: 8 SATA connections, 2 PCIe slots, 4 DIMM rails for up to 64GB installed.

Summary: I was a little skeptical of this Gigabyte Mobo, but have grown to like it. I usually go with another brand, but could not pass up the price and specs listed on this mobo. For the FM2 socket, this mobo has performed very well for 8 months so far.
Summary: It took less than an hour to set up the new PC. This MoBo is great: it has everything you may need in 2013 and plenty of expansion options. The driver disc provided with the board does everything for you in a blink.
