Great Mid Ranged Motherboard 08/23/2013
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Priced great for what it provides.
Has modern features. ( Considering my old ddr2 board)
dual bios. Great for if something goes wrong with the bios or while updating bios.
Works with older-gen CPUs, which is great for people who might not have money for the newer ones.
Not really much of a con but like someone else said, I feel like they could've arranged the headers for everything a little different so certain things aren't stretching to connect to them. Not a big deal though.
I used this in a pretty good mid ranged build, Wasn't super high end but wasn't bottom of the barrel either. This board fit in nicely with it.
Being able to crossfire another card, having usb 3.0 speeds and being able to take advantage of sata 6gb/s is great. Going from an old ASUS ddr2 mATX motherboard with little to no features but the necessities, This was a Nice upgrade and well worth the money right now.
