Summary: Gigabyte DDR3 1600 LGA 1155 Intel Q77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS GA-Q77M-D2H Based on advice from Tonymacx86.com I ordered this board, and Amazon had the same price as anyone else with free shipping so I went with it. My Hackintosh went together quite well, with an i7-3770k, 32gb memory, a 240gb Samsung 840 Pro SSD that just screams, and a Cooler Master case. Installing OS-X 10.8.5 was smooth as butter thanks to TonyMac...
Summary: Used for a Hackintosh build, works very well. Note that my particular board shipped with v.1 Firmware, and it is recommend that you have v.2 firmware. I used a quick Windows 7 install and all the files from Gigabyte's site with no problems. Hackintosh runs Mountain Lion and has no issues with any software. Mobo also works very well for Windows. mATX form factor makes it fit well inside a large variety of cases.
Great Product (especially for Hackintoshes, not too upgradable

Summary: I've had this board for about a month now, i have yet to see any issues with it. It's a great board for its price, and works very well with hackintosh computers. The only downside to this board really being that it's not very upgradable. The only minor issue I had with the board was when trying to daisy-chain 2 case fans to the one socket for a fan on the board. The computer won't start when doing this.
Summary: After years of using many different manufacturers of motherboards, Gigabyte has become my go-to supplier. This is a relatively inexpensive Micro ATX board with 4 memory slots, DVI, HDMI, DP and VGA options, socket 1155, USB3 at a very reasonable price. If you want an expensive, really well-built motherboard, look for something in Gigabyte's Ultra-Durable line, but for a computer for general use, this one is a very good choice.

Summary: First off, my review IS NOT about how good the Gigabyte motherboards are...I suspect they are decent quality. I purchased the ga-q77m-d2h board for the balance in price and features. I have friends that are very happy with their Gigabyte motherboards and they haven't experienced a "problem" board yet. I just happened to receive one of the "duds". However, I do wonder if the Q77 chipset series boards are problematic for Gigabyte because reviews seem to reflect 50% bad.
High-performance low-power board for Ivy Bridge processors

Summary: This Q77 (business-oriented) chipset motherboard has two SATA-6G connectors and four SATA-3G connectors, which is why I chose it over its B75 sibling which costs fifty percent less. It has two PS/2 connectors so that you don't have to use a USB keyboard and mouse when installing the operating system (USB ones often mess up the sleep mode during installation; though they can be add after Windows is installed with no problem).
