Other Thoughts: I have used several Gigabyte MoBo the past few years and have had no problems with them, but I buy them for what I intend using the computer for.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for HTPC..

Pros: Don't ding this for the onboard video or sound or lack of ability to unlock your Phenom II cores. Buy another board if you want that. I can say I'm happy when Phenom II 550 stock on this board for an HTPC build. The onboard video at 3250 is ok, and will play Blu-Ray back at 1080p but you won't get the best sound if you direct audio thru the on-board HDMI.

So I picked up a 4550 card on the cheap, and got sound up to my likeness. Can't knock the board for this; you ought to know better.

Layout is good, but a little weird on the SATA and floppy placements. But I only (and would think you only) would use 2-3 SATA ports, so it's not a big deal. And I don't floppy at all, so I flipped floppy off in BIOS.

BIOS is detailed and you can boot from USB if floppy is off and it finds A:... that's your USB stick with (hopefully) your F3A bios on it.

Board is quiet, low power, Realtek sound is groovy in Win7 no issues.

Cons: Nada.

Other Thoughts: Win 7 RC 7100 X64
Cooler Master Case (cheap on, $30)
Trio of Rosewill fans (80x2 + 120)
Plextor Blu-Ray player
WD 750 GB HD (green)
This mobo
Radeon 4550 low prof w/ HDMI video
Hauppauge 2250
Elgato Hybrid (comes in as Hauppauge 950)
AMD Phenom II 550 (yawns in an HTPC, but ready to graduate to gamer one day)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Well built, stable, good BIOS and utilities. Plenty of fan headers. Just works with no surprises.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've recently purchased three similar AMD motherboards from three different vendors and the Gigabyte is by far my favorite. Very good BIOS for simple performance tuning. I'm not interested in overclocking, but it looks like it would support that well.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice upgrade

Pros: Really great layout...coming from a no good cheap ECS Nforce6m-a v2.0 this motherboard was a giant upgrade! All the options to overclock are there. 2 pci express 2.0 slots for 2 graphics cards. Supports up to 140w processors. Comes with a program to overclock processor,memory,an graphics card from the desktop. Comes with an application to upgrade your bios from the internet,nice an simple. With that simple bios upgrade from the internet the motherboard can support AM3 processors..meaning Phenom 2s. Extra ports that i might never use lol

Cons: The onboard sound is the biggest problem..it's not good,mine cracks an pops. Buy a sound card if you get this mobo..not really a big problem cause they're cheap now but you should. When I put in my original processor an AMD Athlon X2 4000 the whole system seemed to be going slow for some reason,gaming performance was no good at all so I had to replace the processor and upgrade to something higher than a dual core X2 at 2.5 ghz

Other Thoughts: This motherboard went into my system with some parts I already had..I just also had to buy a new processor.

This motherboard
An AMD X2 7750 Kuma Black Edition At 2.9ghz(stock=2.7)
4 Gigs of Kingston Ram
And a Sapphire ATI 4870 w/1 gig of DDR5
500 watt Thermaltake Toughpower supply

5 out of 5 eggsgreat mobo

Pros: Overall great board. very easy to install. runs 6000+ 125w at a cool 30c (80f) at normal clock gaming. box has the AM3 cpu ready tag on it. so that's a plus

Cons: none!

Other Thoughts: the bios has an option to auto select either a 4pin or 3pin cpu fan which did not pick mine up correctly and gave me a annoying beeping till i figured it out. but it may have been fixed with bios updates.
its also works great with windows 7 and seems to be full compatible although the software its bundled with does not work yet.
i would definitely recommended this board to others great value.

5 out of 5 eggsEggxellent Board

Pros: My first build. AMD Ph II x3 720. Easy to follow instructions.
Got everything put together and had a boot issue. Called Gigabyte Tech and Eddie walked me right through it. Love the board, love the tech support from Gigabyte and love the service from Newegg.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I have read some negative comments about Gigabyte Tech Support here. Not only do I disagree, but Eddie was on top of my problem and had me up and running in no time. A tip of the cap to him and their Tech Support area. Thanks Eddie.

e) Overall quality of motherboard

Cons: a) Only supports DDR2 memory (slower)

c) No E-sata port
d) No AMD ACC feature to unlock cores
e) Bios bootup screen only stays visible for a couple seconds, not long enough to read it. Crazy annoying!

5 out of 5 eggsAnother good board from Gigabyte

Pros: HDMI/SPDIF output make this board ideal for a HTPC. Four memory slots, 3PCIe 1x, two 16x (one runs a slower speed.) Four USB headers (plus four ports on the I/O panel.) Gigabit network, decent onboard video. PCI slots, PATA, FDD, LPT and COM port headers if you still need any of them for legacy hardware.

Cons: Full size ATX board limits your case options. Would gladly sacrifice the PCI slots of they'd put this many PCIe slots on a mATX board.
One of the 1x PCIe slots is right behind the rather large northbridge heatsink - some cards might have problems using this slot.
Only one system fan header on the board.

Other Thoughts: I don't overclock, but this board appears to have a lot of options for tweaking those settings.
The driver install disk has a "browser configuration utility" that, to quote the install program "sets your browser search engine to Google!" Not sure why this worthy of an exclamation mark, what this has to do with getting the motherboard components working in Windows, or why they needed to 2MB file to do this.

5 out of 5 eggsThere's a Reason I Buy Gigabyte First

Pros: Great Mobo. Easy setup, no hassling with settings or timings. It just works right out of the box. I bought this for a HTPC build and the integrated ATI 3200HD (HDMI) and optical audio out are perfect for this purpose. Using a full-ATX board gives me more expansion options, would I need them. As always, it is well-built and well laid-out. It has plenty of SATA 3.0 ports and more USB ports and headers than I'll ever use. Installation of Windows 7 was easy and all on-board devices work as they should.

All-in-all, I'm VERY happy with this board and would recommend it to anyone.

Cons: None at all. It has more than I need, feature-wise and works flawlessly in my applications. Perfect execution my Gigabyte.

4 out of 5 eggsGood low cost board

Pros: Worked right out of the box. Mounted AMD 7750 CPU and it booted right up no problems. BIOS allows custom adjustments. On board video and audio good enough for budget system. Has plenty of slots for upgrade.

Cons: A little disapointed in the onboard video. But very close to what I expected.
