why not?

I prefer Gigabyte boards over most others...especially Asus...

as far as ease of use and OC ability with ease Gigabyte does this very easy...they are geared towards users without much OC experience and work very well at it...

I think the reviews on this board are very worth while and this one shows good things about the board...

even the 790GX UD4 board shows promise as well....:)

Gigabyte or DFI?? Birthday coming up soon, gonna make a build :P
Hmm...Gigabyte seems tempting but not a fan of the teletubies colour scheme.

So u prefer bright yellow & green/yellow & orange over blue & white...?
What the hell u talking about teletubies, i watch it every day and all in common with this board that i could find were the 2 weirdo looking things in the south end of the board...

This one is my first Gigabyte board and it will definitely not be the last. This thing has been awesome so far and I love all the things included in the box.
