Most Favorable Review

- A nice, older motherboard (new version though) that arrived reasonably promptly from the other side of the world.

GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P (rev. 2.0) AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - My old AMD FX system has now roared back to life!

Cons: - The USB 2 ports do not work which is a bit of a pain, but the USB 3 ports (of which there are 4) work well enough. Google seems to indicate this is not an isolated issue. Only reason I have dropped 1 'egg' from this review and this is no fault of the seller...

Overall Review: - It is a difficult choice when considering whether to resurrect an older system as I have done or simply junk the old system and start afresh. The extortionate prices of RAM and graphics card at the end of 2018 decided the issue for me and I have had no regrets so far.
