4 out of 5 eggsG1 Sniper

Pros: The setup was pretty easy, Bios was very nice and loaded everything up,

Cons: The guide is lacking, only motherboard I ever bought without a foldout guide, so read the manual. Had an issue with the board, connected Giga, slow response. they really need a c hat channel for Tech Support.

Other Thoughts: great bang for the buck,. first Giga board, was all ASUS man. but for the money the board is great. Sound is awesome.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent board for the price

Pros: Not much to say, got the board with an I5 combo and so far so good. Coupled with an i5 and GTX660 this thing has chewed up and spit out anything I've thrown at it on Ultra settings (including Crysis 2 maxed out) with a solid 60FPS. Probably not the most "pro" board out there but for the money I'm pretty happy with it.

Cons: My biggest gripe is that the sound port (while robust) isn't color coded and it's kind of a pain trying to figure out what goes where. Also, since the install, I've only seen the units initial start screen once. I don't see a post message it just goes straight into running windows, so to get to the bios i basically just have to hammer away at the delete key and hope that it gets me there. More of an annoyance than anything.

5 out of 5 eggsWow! Green POWER!

Pros: Why does nobody mention the green lights? SO AMAZING! I plugged this baby in and she started up with a purr to compliment my 4670k. The heat sink with the killer symbol and the back plating for your case is also really nifty! Did I mention the audio on this board actually sounds as good as a 30 to 50 dollar sound card? I'm an audiophile so I know :P I hear new sounds I haven't heard in songs, I thought my audio was broken but it was new sounds! What is not to love about this board? Sexy sexy green lights, pleasing black and green lay out, along with A AMAZING BIOS! I can't get over how awesome the bios is.. it's like a fully 3d moving background with easy options.. as if booting from CD/HD couldn't be easy enough!

Cons: Not many cables ( a few sata); not really a con but I am so lazy I don't have extra sata cables! It didn't come with more green lights.. other then that I would say nothing is wrong with this board unless it comes DOA.

Other Thoughts: This board is so awesome. I am getting double the fps in newest titles with the new 4670k, this mobo, and 780gtx... couldn't be happier (well a nice new 1350w PSU would be cool..).

4 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby

Pros: Solid mobo with good performance and capabilities.

Cons: The BIOS that this board ships with is garbage. Had lots of BSOD's and app crashes until I upgraded to F7. Make sure to do that right away.

5 out of 5 eggsNothing wrong

Pros: Has everything you need at a reasonable price point; LGA1150, SATA6Gb, USB3, 4 memory slots.

Cons: Doesn't exactly come with huge amount of accessories - a couple sata cables and nothing else. Not that I needed anything.

Other Thoughts: Starting to do a build with this in it I noticed that none of the 9 or so CD/DVD drives I have laying around in the house are SATA and motherboards these days don't have PATA slots... I don't think anyone uses discs for anything outside OS install anymore anyway :)

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good. Great Budget Board

Pros: This board has all the basic gaming features for a decent budget board. It doesn't say so in the description but it does support crossfire and sli ( I'm currently running two GTX 570's). Sound quality is excellent. I've just got a cheap logitech system and it's never sounded better than it does with this audio. It's got all you need for a basic board.

Cons: Just a couple of reasons for the -1 star. Keep in mind this is not gigbytes high end gaming board.

1 - I would have liked to have seen at least 1 more usb header on a gaming board. Lot's of people are going with liquid cooling on their gaming systems and the good setups hook into one of the usb headers. There are 2 standard USB headers.

2 - The audio connections on the back panel are not color coded. As long as I can remember the jacks for the computer speaker systems have been color coded. I ended up plugging mine into the wrongs spot. But on the plus side, with the audio program, a window will pop up on your monitor and show you the correct color coded locations.

Not a huge deal between the two, but combined it was enough for me to take off a star.

Other Thoughts: So far this is a very affordable and acceptable setup. If I have any problems I'll be sure to change my review.
