5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent MB. I am using it in a HTTP build. First MB was DOA. Newegg exchanged it with no problem.

Cons: I had to pay shipping on return DOA. That negated the price saving I obtained by purchasing from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: Excellent MB. I would add "for the money" but even without those words, I would still say it is a great, well-laid-out mother board! It runs quiet and not too hot. Perfect for general to moderate PC use!

Cons: Can't think of any except the difficulty attaching the front panel wires to their pins. Because of the mid-tower case, space was very limited and it was difficult to get done without a new tool.

Other Thoughts: I will buy Gigabyte for my next build as well!

1 out of 5 eggsNo sound

Pros: 1st computer I put together myself, manual instructions were easy to follow. This was the bundle with the AMD Athlon x2 3.1ghz cpu.

Cons: After 2 weeks of it working the sound all of a sudden died. I tried reinstalling the drivers, reformatted the whole computer, and yes my speakers were plugged in....

Other Thoughts: I'm sure this is an isolated incident but having to take apart a 3 week old computer is annoying nonetheless

5 out of 5 eggsLooks Good So Far

Pros: The Board seems to be great so far. I installed a Phenom II x4 940 and 8 gig of OCZ Gold edition ram had to tinker with the ram voltage and manually set it to read as 1066. but no big deal, don't buy ram over 2.1 volt the board will go no higher than 2.1 keep this in mind when buying your ram. had to update the bios on the board so it would read the processor as a x4 940 that wasn't hard either but if your not sure how to do this you should know you have to do this so it will give you the full effect of the Phenom II x4 940.

Cons: The on board video is good and for most people building a HTPC it will be fine but don't kid yourself its not enough to play the newer games out there so buy a video card if you don,t have on laying around. Example Guitar hero 3 legends of rock on low settings with no crowd on, locked it up with windows 7 beta and windows xp, Ubuntu ultimate edition 2.0 you can not use desktop effects or video playback was real choppy.

Other Thoughts: If you use the Phenom II x4 940 go into the bios and set the cpu fan to full speed not the default so your processor will stay cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy with GB MB

Pros: This is the second GB mother board and build that I have done in the last 12 months. This system is stable, fast and expandable. (Bios upgraded to F4) Setup RAID 0 with two 500 Gig WD drives. 4 Gigs a DDR2 1066 memory. Temporality using AMD 6000 processor OC at 3.3GHz. I plan on purchasing soon a Phenom II X4 940. Had no issue with on board video but I upgraded to Nvidia 9600 due to my gaming. System runs cool and stable. Setting up RAID was a bit tricky but works once your play around with the bios long enough. I feel I know the bios a bit too much using the GB manual and trial by error technique.

Cons: Raid Setup does not flow well during installation.

Other Thoughts: System running over a mounth now. No issues at all running my business and games on the same system.

5 out of 5 eggsgood value

Pros: had all the features we wanted and then some. everything on the board was labled well, driver cd had all drivers needed for XP. Its fast with athlon 2.5GHz dual core.

Cons: it wasn't free

Other Thoughts: got this for a system I swaped out the board CPU and Ram to update to faster CPU, more ram and better video. THe system is used for office, web, email and some of his sons games and so far its been excelent.

5 out of 5 eggsexceeded expectations

Pros: I bought this to build a 'cheap' backup for my main PC, which is bleeding-edge (and expensive). I typically build my own PCs with separate (non-integrated) parts, ie sound, video, etc. cards, but I thought I would try the integrated approach with this motherboard. I stuck a processor, stock cpu cooler and memory on it; stuck it, a hard drive and dvd burner into a case, and let it rip. it took off running. no fuss, no muss, no trouble. I find I use this PC more than the one I built it to back up. It does everything the bleeding-edge PC does, and it's a lot less temperamental.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: it doesn't get any easier, or better, than this!

5 out of 5 eggsNice for the Price.

Pros: .
Got this Mobo along with an AM2-4850 for Wifey's PC. She had been complaining of slo-o-o-o-w surfing. No longer! Also, lots of built-in BIOS tweaks, if you're a 'tweaker'. For the price, a good all-around board.

Cons: .
None here.

Other Thoughts: .
On board graphics are not too shabby.
