Graphical bios is minimalistic but is just perfect for me, when it comes to quality and reliability no one surpasses Gigabyte.
UPDATE: Found the boot problem. It was a SanDisk USB 2.0 thumb drive and not the SATA. What happen is that when I left the thumb drive plugged in the available USB 3.0 slot that my computer would not boot. Turns out that UEFI Windows Boot Manager looks to the thumb drive first as a bootable drive and then hangs. I guess I am relegated to removing my thumb drive everytime I shut down the machine or it could be just unique to USB 3.0 slots. Seems to be unique to the UEFI bios. Also successfully set up my harddrives in Raid 0 with the Z77 chipset ports 4/3 but could not do it with Marveil on ports 6/7. Very easy to do and manual covers all the steps.
Now running Windows 8 Pro Upgrade. WEI now shows (new scale 1.0 to 9.9) . Processor 7.9, Memory 8.2, Graphics 7.9, Gaming Graphics 7.9, Primary Hard Disk (older SATA 3ms disk) 5.9. Windows 8 Pro upgrade Installed without difficulty and is compatible with STEAM.
The BIOS firmware update utility in Windows is convenient although it might require user to download the firmware file from Gigabyte's website manually.
The UEFI interface takes time to get used to, but afterwards it is quite easy to use. However, My Kingston HyperX 1600MHZ memory (2x KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX = 4x4GB sticks) can't run 1600MHZ on this board. I need to set them to 1333MHZ to prevent BSODs from occurring. It seems the board and the memory don't get along 100%.
Btw, the board supports Virtu, meaning by enabling this feature and installing according software, system could switch between onchip and discrete graphics on the fly, and monitors could be set to connect either to the motherboard's ports or the graphics cards'. And although it only has a single PCI-E 3.0 slot and two 2.0 slots, it still supports 2-Way SLI or Crossfire.
All of the component list below (and bought from Amazon) installed and worked with out a hitch.
I updated the driver for the motherboard, video card and WiFi card -- all other drivers were supplied by Windows 7.
This is what worked for me.

-Notes: no overclock. I will update this review with windows experience score when I get my new video card. I will also update this review if I ever overclock.
I managed to boot off of my old XP machine's hard drive on this set up. My old system was from 2005 and ran windows xp 32bit on a Pentium 4 and Dell MOBO. Setting bios to ATA mode allowed me to boot off my old hard drive on first go. This was actually a lot easier than installing the SSD into my old system (huuuuuge pain). All drivers for the MOBO loaded off the disk. I was able to set the bios back to AHCI and reboot. Booting into different installs is a breeze and now I don't have to migrate a bunch of stuff to my win7 install.
I chalk up success to this awesome MOBO! Also, props to Gigabyte!
