Pros: Soundblaster Sound Core 3D provides really good sound with many options for adjustment to suit tastes.
Very clean design made it easy to build up.
Way more expansion capability than I need.
It does what Gigabyte says it can do.
Cons: Blue Ambient LED seems a bit weak.
Upgradeable opamp seems a bit frivolous.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this mobo. I've owned it four months and absolutely no performance issues. I love it when I buy something I don't have to fiddle with. The weak blue LED could be a defect, but my case has red LEDs so its not worth my effort to investigate fixing it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Seems very fast and video quality is quite good.
Cons: First card only lasted about a minute and a half. RMA has been running fine for about 7 weeks. Noticing some blue pixellation artifacts in America's Army game. Cannot get theater mode to display video full screen on secondary monitor with cloned displays.
Other Thoughts: Cons are comparing new card in new Vista 64 computer with an older Intel P4 XP computer with ATI X1650 card and Catalyst drivers. I can't understand why features I used in older card and drivers don't work in newer system. I'm using latest 64 bit Catalyst 9.1.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Huge fans=great airflow, low noise. Nice area for routing cables for improved air flow and neat looking installation.
Cons: What's the point of filter in front bezel if the side fan vent has no filter? No system speaker. Had to find my own when I had problems and needed to hear beep codes from mobo.
Other Thoughts: Fabricated my own filter for side fan opening. With the bottom mounted power supply found a neater installation by rotating top fan 90 degrees clockwise and tie wrapping wires along back of case.READ FULL REVIEW
