Pros: - Wifi and bluetooth onboard

- Stable and reliable
- Debug LED's
Cons: - RGB Fusion software is a smoking pile of burnt biscuits
- Feels flimsy when building
Overall Review: I've had this board for over a year and have had basically no issues whatsoever. I've used it with an R5 2600 and now with a R5 3600 and everything is stable and great. My RAM works great with XMP 3200Mhz C16 with no issues. Sabrent Rocket NVME runs full speed and has good temps because of the onboard heatsinks. This board has pretty much every feature you will really need unless you're wanting to overclock a 3950X. Plenty of SATA ports, decent IO, Wifi & BT, good onboard audio, competent Bios, handsome looks and debug LED's to add icing to the cake. The only downside is RGB Fusion is so bad that I often leave lights off or on one solid color. To be fair, Asus, Asrock, and MSI all have TERRIBLE RGB software as well, but it still deserves on egg off. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and I will certainly consider another Gigabyte board when I upgrade in a year or two!
Pros: - Great performance per dollar
- 0 RPM mode for silent operation
- 8GB VRAM
Cons: - No fancy lights or backplate
- Can get a tad hot/noisy under heavy load, but certainly not the worst I've experienced.
Overall Review: This card has been great for my mid level 1080p gaming setup. Freesync works great with my Samsung LC24F396FHNXZA monitor. Runs pretty much any game I've played at high settings 1080p 60-72 FPS. I have this card paired with a Ryzen 5 2600 and it handles video editing/VFX in DaVinci Resolve 15 like a champ as well. Overall, I would highly recommend this card for 1080p gaming and basic content creation tasks. 10/10 would buy again!
