Feature rich, competitive price.
Huge fight with drivers.
I used this mobo is a "budget" build. I say "budget" because this was slightly more than I wanted to pay for a mobo but it offset my cost of adding a PC card or two because of the features it offered.

Manufacturer rebate took forever to arrive and it wasn't even a cheque, it was a prepaid mastercard. The only place I could get the full $10 out was at the gas pump for my car.

basicly everything you need for a mb
only 2 ram slots
great board, bought it with athlon ii x3 405e in a bundle, runs fast, very good upgrade for the price,very satisfied with it

Experience: 90 Days
 Verified Owner
Great Price, small form, decent integrated graphics
only 2 dimm slots.
Great board, my first gigabyte product, satisfied, good potential to squeeze a little more juice from you older parts,

i planed to use as a low end system so many things that would have made me not buy otherwise do not apply..

great potential to bee kept in use with spare parts from upgrades on serious rigs i have

Low cost, lots of USB ports, HDMI capable
None so far
I purchased this board to repair a clients compaq. The motherboard was a great match for the computer. I didn't even have to restore the operating system as it all all drivers to update  without errors. If you need a replacement board for an HP/Compaq product, this is the one to buy.

-great board
-fair price
-2 ram slots
Built friend's computer with this board and so far no problems. I bought a few Gigabyte boards in the past and all of them still work perfectly. I would recommend this board for anyone building a basic computer.

price/ video integrated
overclock is tricky , 2 rams slot
This motherboard have a great potential for the price but i thy to overclock my 550 and i was not able to push this motherboard high enough. Still make a good job!

Experience: 1 Weeks
Cheap to buy
VGA, DVID, and HDMI out
Only 2 sata cables (this is pushing it, what do you really expect from a sub $70 mobo?)
This is actually my first product from Gigabyte and I'm throughly impressed. It's cheap to buy (and cheaper after pm), has a MIR, full hdmi, vga, and dvid connections, and actually decent build quality. For a cheap, surf the web using the plasma computer, this is the perfect fit!

Experience: 2 Weeks

dual monitor support with integrated vid card
gets pretty hot (70-80) when using integrated vid card
Passive cooling creates a lot of heat with this mobo especially when using the integrated vid card. The card is a good deal, supports DDR2 ram for people who have some left. Come with one heatsink with a gigabyte logo on it, can be removed to increase airflow. Motherboard is sturdy and can only cores/OC.

Experience: 3 Months
 Verified Owner
Excellent AMD board for the price
None for the price
Great boards for budget builds and office computers. DVI and HDMI output. As expected from Gigabyte, all componens (including capacitors) on the board are of excellent quality. The boards is also an excellent overclocker, reaching 270-280 MHz FSB without any issues. Be sure you know the limitations of the 760g chipset and see if these limitations will affect you prior to purchasing it; for office and surfing computers, this board is perfect.

after more than 2 months a can tell you that for the price is a nice motherboard, for a htpc use, regular use or entre level gaming use. support up to phenom ii x6 and give the option to unlock the phenom ii x2 and x3
only 4 sata ports, only 1 case fan pin and 2 ddr2 slot
prety nice and give the opportunity to evolve without changing everything in one shot. I use the one with a phenom II x2 550 and I did unlock the two extra core and it work very nice
