Any on have any experience with Gigabyte motherboards?
For the last 3 builds covering 10 years Iíve been using Intelís MB, the current being their now discontinued Extreme D975XBX2 Bad Axe 2
. As you can see, the board is a little long in the tooth as well as the Core 2 Quad Q6600
With that said I was really set on getting the Intel Extreme DX58SO
board but it too is getting a little old, especially since some of the newer X58 boards are coming out with USB 3.0 and SATA 6, the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5
being one of them, and the one Iím currently settling for.
So, does anyone have thoughts, experiences with Gigabyte or this particular board? Please share.
BTW, hereís the parts needed for my i7 system build. Everything else will be moving from my current system.
MB - GA-X58A-UD5
CPU - Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz
RAM - Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator 6 GB 3 x 2 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz
