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!!
Overall an excellent value from Gigabyte - - a company that consistently puts out stellar products.
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)
Capable of 32 GB RAM and a AMD 8 core CPU/GPU
AMD Dual Graphics compatible
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
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.

I used this motherboard in a budget build for my aunt. It's still doing the job since last Christmas. Excellent product.Published 22 months ago by D. Jackson
Really impressed with the layout of the board compared to the MSI. Fits much better in a micro-ATX case. Everything went in easy and all systems are working great.Published on April 4, 2014 by Ginger Snap

I have to keep resetting CMOS jumpers. I think it cannot keep up with an AMD A8 quad core processor.Published on December 6, 2013 by Brenda H
AMD is phasing out FM1 sockets for FM2 so I knew this was a board dead in the water. But it went well with my budget build coming in around $50. Read morePublished on September 5, 2013 by Shadow_GetFit
It would be a great motherboard if my Ethernet port, audio jacks, and USB ports worked out of the box. 2 UBS's worked and the audio works on and off. Read morePublished on August 13, 2013 by royston earl
