-good for gaming
Cons
-support only 4gb ddr2
-High end gpu waste one of the pci slot.
Summary
Got this years 2009 for my gaming rig and I'm very please with it, can run high end cpus and gpus, a bit limited on the ram but anyone interested in this board should know about the restrictions this board has.

Pros
Inexpensive, small, good Linux support. Good value for a low-powered PC or home server.
Cons
None.
Summary
I brought this little mobo to make a small DRP server for my Apache and DNS Server. Install of Linux was easy with no assle for drivers since the chipset is an Intel. The only thing I may complain is the numbers or memory slots, but at this price I have nothing to say ;-).

Pros
Best budget board for the price
Great support service if needed
Cons
No DVI
Summary
Bought a few motherboards like this and got no problems at all. With an e5200 and a 2x2GB G.Skill kit, it's an excellent combo for office and internet. Will continue to buy Gigabyte products.

Pros
Inexpensive, small, good Linux support. Good value for a low-powered PC or home server.
Cons
No AHCI support, some poor layout decisions. Crappy Realtek NIC, but what do you expect at this price. More PCIe 1x would be nice.
Summary
I bought this board to replace an old nForce 2-based board I had in my small NAS (4x500GB in software RAID5) that I ended up killing accidentally. This was cheap and seemed to have all the features I needed, and I figured with the much newer chipset it'd perform better as well.

Well, without AHCI, there's no support for NCQ or hotplug. I get about 50MB/s slower reads out of the array than with the older (and less well supported) nForce2 board. Very tempted to buy a PCIe SATA controller and see if that helps, but I'm not sure the PCIe x16 slot can take anything but a graphics card.

Some minor layout issues: The IDE/floppy ports should really be on the opposite side of the power connector so the two don't have to cross. The pin headers for the HDD LED and power switch and so-on are a bit awkward where they are in relation to the SATA ports. With all the SATA ports populated it's tough to get in there, and vice versa.

All in all a pretty decent board for the price, but I kinda wish I spent the $125 on a G35/G45 board instead. 4 stars, but only because it's so cheap.

Pros
Low cost, powerful
Cons
Only got one PCI-e slot.
Summary
Well like I said before, low cost. Best for budget build PC. However don't expect too much from it. I build a system with this and found nothing wrong with it. Btw, try not to use Gigabyte software. Most of them crash.

Pros
Energy saver feature, price point, features
Cons
None
Summary
I used this motherboard to build my windows home server,
matched it up with a a Antec NSK4480 case, a couple 500 gig hard drives, and a E2160 processor, like the energy saver feature seeing as my server is on alot of the time, so far so good no problems with this board at all!
