Excerpt: This Gigabyte motherboard is a modern socket AM2+ board with more features than I ever plan on using. It has eSata for external hard drive hookup, SPDIF out as well as all of the standard connections you’ve come to expect these days.
Summary: Cheap, fits a mid tower with ease. It's a rather simple board, yet is/was ready for any upgrades, hardware wise. I bought one to replace my friend Motherboard three years ago. Simple installation (if you can read instructions) newer versions might be a better buy now. But for its time it was very good.
Summary: simple setup, the product has minimal functions for basic everyday user. It could use more than 2 PCI cards. make sure your box has a lot of fan. Northbridge is running very hot while you squeeze HD out of ths board.
Just what I wanted! I needed this part and couldn't find it any where!

Summary: Excellent! It arrived yesterday so I replaced the old faulty one with the new motherboard to match all my specs, case size and other hardware! I am so happy to have a functioning PC again. I also saved a lot of money as one guy try to convince me of getting a whole new PC, when the only thing wrong was a faulty motherboard! Very Satisfied!
Summary: GigaByte makes of habit of doing something that computer nerds like me love to see: Giving TONS of features for a low price in a small package. It's well built, and it has the heavy feeling to back it up. Upon taking it out of the "box," (Seller knows why quotes are used there. haha) I saw GigaByte's trademark blue / teal colored board. Although it seems like the multiple colors look odd, as soon as you boot up, you'll forget about the colors.
Summary: I was using an older Pentium 4 system for my Media center, and was looking for something with more power and efficiency. I paired this motherboard with an AMD 4850e processor, which only requires 45 watts. This runs quiet and and the onboard video has enough power to run my HD-DVD and Blu-ray titles. I haven't tried gaming since it is a dedicated HTPC and sits by my TV. I have a seperate computer for games.
Excerpt: IGPs have come a long way and have become almost comparable to the discrete graphics of today. One such example is the AMD’s 780G chipset, that features ATi’s HD3200 Graphics integrated into the Northbridge. The motherboard GA-MA78GM-S2H from Gigabyte is based on the 780G chipset. Apart from the obvious feature of it being one of the first ever IGP supporting DX 10 and Hybrid Crossfire support, it has a plethora of connectivity options, that’ll be keeping most of the...
Pros: Plethora of Connectivity options, powerful on - board IGP (HD3200), future proof
Summary: В работе 2,5 года. Работает безотказно - использую на полную мощность - задействованы все слоты памяти, все сата порты, стоит видюха. Почти не греется и никогда не возникало конфликтов в оборудовании, за исключением режима RAID, но это не так критично.
