All components great!

Pros: All (price, operatibility, functionality, new technology)
Cons: just a one little, just if you want a gaming PC this is not for you, just 2 memory dimms, but is enough to place 8gb of ram and video with AMD APU can move Blu-ray in 1080p via HDMI so smooth! Games can play perfect in normal mode, no for use in High mode or Ultra mode!

I will recommend this to all!!

Can't beat the price for this combo. I am really happy with this purchase as I was forced to make a decision to buy a whole new computer or build one. I read other reviews on this motherboard and AMD's APU processor and was impressed. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and haven't one complaint so far. I should add that I am running Windows 7 64 bit and originally started with 8GB Kingston 1333 memory which I upgraded to Corsair 8GB 1866 and set the BIOS to Profile 1 which accommodates the XMP memory modules however I can't say I notice a big difference in the speed or performance as I only use my computer for web browsing, emails, min word processing and some games. Nothing task intensive to warrant the increase in memory upgrade. According to Windows7 computer performance the current processor calculations per second is 6.3, memory per second 7.3, graphics desktop w/Aero 6.5, gaming graphics 3D business and gaming is 6.5 and hard disk data transfer rate is 5.9. Not sure what all these figures mean in relation to overall performance and value but I am happy to be once again surfing the web.

Motherboard has proven to be a stellar mid-range purchase. By mid-range I mean it didn't have all the bells and whistles of the more expensive models, but who really uses those anyway? This board has everything us normal users need and that does include gamers, too.

Overall an excellent value from Gigabyte - - a company that consistently puts out stellar products.

A+++

Looked at the listing for almost a month before I decided to purchase it. Seller was able to answer my questions, and said it was new and unused. Low and behold, that was exactly the case. Came with the original box, back plate, driver cd and manual. Powered it up, and if performed 100%. Price was an added bonus, along with lightning fast, well packaged delivery!!!!

So I was on a pretty tight budget and I wanted something that would run a few games decently and also be a generally quick machine to upgrade later on. Using this motherboard I was able to get more than what I had initially expected. I pushed an A6-3500 APU from 2.1GHz to 4.7GHz without upping the voltage. I also upped my RAM (which was running at 1333MHz) to 1600MHz. With a Radeon HD7770 I got away with playing Battlefield 3 pretty well too. Obviously the APU was a bottneck but I'm still quite amazed with its overall performance. The iGPU handled games like DiRT3 and Tomb Raider (2013) pretty well with relatively low heat. This motherboard is pretty standard but it's been worth every penny. This cheap motherboard and CPU combo tied me over till I could upgrade to an FX-6300 and it's been a more than enjoyable ride.

This motherboard has worked wonderfully from the get-go, and still performs solidly after a year of use.

I used this to rebuild my old Windows XP system, with a mind on the value and future upgrade capability for under $250. (8GB RAM, quad-core Athlon, 1GB Graphics card, 550 Watt Ultra Power Supply, this motherboard, SATA Cables, and SATA 24x DVD-RW)

Pros:

Capable of 32 GB RAM and a AMD 8 core CPU/GPU
RAID support
AMD Dual Graphics compatible
Gigabit Ethernet

Cons:

You have to have a AMD GPU or a graphics card (or both); there is no graphics capability built in
SATA 2.0 is only half the speed of SATA 3.0

If you're custom-building a media server for the living room or playing around with VOIP or firewalls, check out this motherboard. Has all the necessary ports for building a computer that doesn't have to be a powerhouse. This little workhorse has PCI, PCI-E, a slot for video card and two DDR3 RAM slots. I built my PBX server with this motherboard and it is fantastic. Inexpensive product but worth every single penny.

I bouught this for an economical build for internet browing and music for the carport. I've only been running it a short time but no hiccups. Set up was easy. I particuarly like the fact that the manufacturer lets you opt out of the bloatware included on the driver disc, for that alone they deserve 10 stars. Other manufacturer's should pay attention. The only thing that I think should be fixed in the addition of another system fan connection on the board, this one only has one.
Edit: I originally gave the mobo a 5 star rating. And the first one I purchased still runs fine. A friend asked me to build a PC using the same parts I used for my build, and that included this mobo. When the parts arrived I noticed the socket for the CPU on the mobo had a rectangular raised ridge surrounding the center of the socket. This precluded the CPU from seating properly. And the expected socket keys did not exist. Amazon replaced the motherboard and today I received the replacement. This motherboard has a similar problem but instead of having a rectangur shaped raise ridge, it has two raised ridges, one at each end of the rectangle. Again the CPU is prevented from seating. I'm wondering how the same product can have 3 diverse socket arrangements. I'm still in the hunt for a motherboard but you can bet it won't be this model. No more replacements of the same product for me. Needless to say this has dragged on longer than it should.
