5 out of 5 eggs Gigabyte to the rescue 04/07/2009

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-MA770-UD3 AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Price, compatibility, layout, and so far stability

Cons:

None occurred to me while I was putting the system together

Other Thoughts:

This board replaced a failed Abit nForce 939 board. I was looking for a economical and reliable AM2 replacement. This is my first Gigabyte board and I have been impressed with the ease of working with it. It came loaded with the F4 Bios and had no problems with a 2.7 Kuma cpu which is now at 3.1. No issues with the GTX 260 vid card, 4 GB of G Skill, and an X-fi sound card. I did ditch the poor Kuma cpu heatsink and reused the nice heatpiped sink from the old Opteron cpu. The performance of the gigabit LAN seems comparable to my previous Intel Pro LAN card and I did install the latest drivers from the Realtek website. Everything fits in an Antec 900 case. A bonus was that my old XP SP3 installation was able to recognize the new AM2 chipset and boot easily. A little driver cleanup and a Windows reactivation has provided a trouble free installation.
