Summary: this is a good board is now able to take new 6 core cpus but not ddr3 mem I have one problem I ordered another board version 3.3 was assured by amazon that i would get this version not 1.0 1.0 but i would receive 3.3 well i got version 1.1. I should know better then to believe someone working for the company that i would get what i wanted. Amazon has no way of informing shipping what to send if there are several versions of an item.
Summary: I like Gigabyte MBs. I built about 5 HTPCs for me and friends with these boards. The big advantage is that it has Firewire port, and onboard graphics. The flip side, it is has no support for dual link DVI or TV out.
Summary: Great motherboard. Though it's a micro ATX it has everything. It installed quite easily and is running quite stable. Nice simple Bios, paired it with Athlon II X2 240, 2GB PNY DDR2-800, 250GB WD hard drive and it over clocks well too. The IGP is really fast, amazingly so, it encodes and decodes HD quality vids in seconds..Nice 785 chipset. Only con is that this board seems to be a bit picky about what memory it will run at 800Mhz.
Summary: This is the first time I haven't used an Asus motherboard on a build or upgrade. I was impressed with the future upgrade information that is available for the board. Which is why I went with it. Also a good price. Installing the board was easy (it is two screws less than it's MATX replacement in size). It is good that they are thinking ahead for owners. The board can be expanded onto (many CPU chips) with a few PSU units.
Excerpt: köpte detta kort för inte så länge sedan på komplett.se det har fungerat perfekt och mycket lätt installerat har inte haft några problem med det hittills, kör det tillsammans med en amd 2,6 GHz dubbelkärnig processor men man kan även kör trippel och fyrkärniga am2+ processorer, busshastigheten på detta kort är mycket snabbt 2600 MHz för den pengen det kostar.
