Would You Buy It Again?

Recommended Posts

Dont tell her the computers dead then use it to order a new one. Tell her is dying and i you have to order a new one quickly before it dies.

I have a Gigabyte now, and I am very pleased with it. Rock stable, but I want to OC a bit more.. on this board I can't lock the PCI, AGP bus.. and my ATI 7500 keeps holding me back....

Knowing what all you guys know, I passed on buying it completely. So I guess that makes my answer a no. Makes me glad I bought a stable disposable board for half the price!

Installed like a charm!!!! didn't even have to re-format(but I probably will), just had to do a repair install of XP.

re-install a couple things, but that is better than I expected.

 

and was able to overclock the system better than ever...

 

updated the BIOS to 1004 (be careful it looks like 1004 is only for the PCB boards) and had/having probs with MBM and Asus probe... MB temp at 15c and CPU temp at 37c.. CPU temp seems ok compared to old system. but MBM temp seems low... I guess it just measures from a different location than the Gigabyte board.

 

I'll play more today and let ya'll know what I think (like you care! :P )

These specs of course are for the deluxe, the regualr is missing a couple of things ,400 mhz fsb support(for pcb 2.0 and 1.04-1.06, and a7n8x-x), usb2, firewire, sata raid, dual lan, digital out via spdif, doldy digital 5.1 surround sound, great overclockability. Not to mention overheat protection, asus probe, dual channel ddr support, agp 8x. Thats pretty much all i can remember right now. If anyone else remembers anything else please add.
