Closer Look:

It has been a while since I have used a Gigabyte Motherboard, but after opening the packaging I was quickly reminded that Gigabyte likes to use a lot of different bright colors to define the internal headers.


The board itself is composed of blue PCB and is a standard ATX format, something that is very rare considering that most integrated motherboards are micro-ATX.



The motherboard supports 16 GB of DDR2 RAM, has 4 onboard SATA headers, an aluminum SB heatsink, one IDE connector, a PCI-E x16, an x4 slot, x1 slot, and 2 PCI slots.




The Northbridge is cooled by an aluminum heatsink that bears the Gigabyte name. In addition to the normal external I/O ports, there are HDMI and D-Sub outputs.



There is not much in the way of bundled accessories, but the board does include an HDMI to DVI-I adapter.
