Pros
Cheap, good bang for buck, reliable brand
Cons
sound card not the best, not good for OC'ing
Summary
I bought this because of a good bang for your buck deal. So far, it's been running great. It is not the bset at OC'ing though, with the Q6600 and 4GB gskill RAM. Many connectors, SATA, etc. make this a good deal. WOuld buy again for a common build.

Pros
Solid Construction
Works out of the box
Good basic overclocker
Cons
No Raid
Northbridge a little hot
Summary
I always buy Gigabyte Mobo's, and I have still never regretted that philosophy. Rock steady performance, this board is an excellent budget Overclocking board or general use board. Disappointed that it doesn't come with Raid, but I never really use raid much anyways.

Pros
cheap
overclocking
Cons
bios
Summary
great motherboard for the price, and it overclocked my e5200 really easily, I however do not like the bios interface. Maybe im just use to asus's bios but i had a little trouble at first. This is more based on preference but to those who dont care, it is quality stuff.

Cheap, good ocer, great overall.
Cons
Dosnt have sli, not so great for upgrading. Depends on your goals tho.
Summary
I bought this for about 100bucks. Its worth every penny. Simple setup. I never built a computer piece by piece before and it was easy. Dual bios is a winner.

Pros
great price
Cons
none
Summary
This is a great motherboard. I bought it to replace my P35-D3SL motherboard that died on me. I was looking for a cheap replacement and this board suited my needs. It’s basically the same motherboard it had before but with a new chipset and one fewer PCI-E slots.

Pros
Cheap and good quality
Cons
no crossfire
Summary
A good motherboard to try. It has lots of usb but no 1394. Good layout too. I would recommend this MB to someone who doesn't play high end games.

no 1394
Summary
An excellent motherboard in this price range. Very easy to overclock. 8 USB is a bonus. A solid motherboard for beginner who doesn't need crossfire.

Pros
Cheap, good mobo for overclocking.
Cons
no e-sata/firewire the power saving features suck.
Summary
Great mobo for overclocking and good price too, however overclocked settings would not stick and would revert to normal settings if the mobo thinks the overclock is unstable (due to the powersaving features). I had to download a beta BIOS F5c to get it to work properly. After that it works just great!
