I am a newbie that built his first pc using a Gigabyte 965p-ds4 board and I am thoroughly happy with the build. The only change I would suggest would be a change of gui for the easytune software as in all honesty, a simple interface would be far easier on the eyes as well as use.

Another thing of interest would be to incorporate some benchmarking program in the list of software for gigabyte builds. An alternative to the usual pcmark or studiomark would be very interesting.

I have a GA-M57SLI-S4 board and im just fine with it, it's stable and can be well overclocked (my RAM is the first to stop me from going :D).
The only bad is the chipset is cooled only by this pretty small passive radiator so it gets hot as hell (even in normal use), i had to place a fan near it to keep it normal during OC.

I still have some old Gigabyte Pentium2 boards too but they are too old, still one of them serves as a router. :P
Im an Estonian so my english is not that good :P

I just upgraded my PC from a Gigabyte GA-7N400PRO2 (yes, that old!) to a GA-MA770-DS3 and I was disappointed to find that the new board didn't come with expansion brackets like the original one did. Particularly disappointing was the lack of LPT bracket, as I have a parallel printer from years ago which still works extremely well.

Hunting around for these, they seem impossible to buy as a 'spare', so why Gigabyte don't include them in the box is a mystery (although I'm sure that keeping costs low is a contributing factor).

Anyway, other than that, I find GB products to be very well made and user friendly with impressive performance, so I'll remain a customer for some time (even if I don't get expansion brackets with my next board either  :D )

Hey DJBenz,

LPT ports - AARRRHHH, through away your old printer and get yourself a USB one -  ;D

You right, cost factor, but that is not the main reason, we found that printers are now all USB.
The other reason is because we can - haha

Thx for your support.  ;)

Maybe a little short sighted to say that all printers are USB? Granted, if you're buying a new printer you'd struggle to find one on a parallel connection, but printers tend to last many years and a lot of users still have their old parallel versions.

There are 42 users on this forum, 3 of them have requested help on getting the LPT bracket for their motherboard. That's 7% ;)

You still need to reply to my PM about the bracket, BTW.  ;D

With the price of DDR2 being so cheap it would be nice if the Gigabyte I-Ram / I-Box was upgraded to use DDR2 .

Sorry for the second post but i couldn't see a edit button to add comments to my previous post above .

Other things i'd like to see are .........

A dual motherboard built onto a single Atx form factor with a onboard KVM to switch between the two as alot of people now own more than one computer.

A server edition Matx board with at least 4 network sockets built in as standard so the server can be used as a switch or router without using onboard slots.

A Gigabyte passive silent Computer case with a Motherboard designed to fit the case where the CPU and Northbridge socket are on the back of the motherboard so as it is screwed down the CPU and NB chip press against the Motherboard tray that acts as the passive heatsink wiich in turn is attached to the outer sidepanel on the tray side for silent fanless cooling.
