Summary: I bought this motherboard locally for $59 on close-out and installed an Intel G3220 CPU for $49.00. Happened to have two 2GB sticks of DR3 RAM. So for very small money, have a great PC to play with. Playing with Windows 10 (Technical Preview/Insider Program) on it and no issues with installation.
Summary: Gigabyte is going straight down hill with their product quality. They used to make a solid, reliable product and not 50+% of their MBs and components my computer mnaufacturing company purchases do no pass our initial testing with a good handful dieing months out.
Summary: Great motherboard, works well in both Windows and OS X no problems! In installing OS X there were no problems, everything worked OOB for me except audio, but that was fixed quickly with Multibeast ALC 887 option current, and the system definition of iMac14,2! Installation was done.
Summary: I used this in a recent build for a friend. I'm used to boards that just work out of the box - this board is definitely not that. It's also at a "no frills, just works" price point, so you'd think you could expect that from it.
Painless install, worked fine with Windows 8.1 and Intel i7

Summary: Used this to set up a new office PC with Windows 8.1, 4th gen Intel i7, 530W Rosewill Power Supply, and 8 GB of GSkill RAM. It has been running now a couple of weeks with no problems whatsoever. There is a similar model with a different suffix - (X87 or Z87?
Summary: First one I got didn't work at all, and cost me nearly £5 to send back(which I never got back). The other one "works", however, any other bios that isn't F3 won't load up linux unless it's something awful like ubuntu that spies on you with your searches.
