This is a good board, but I noticed that after installing 2 sticks of DDR3 1333 RAM the POST showed that they were operating at 1066Mhz instead of 1333Mhz. Apparently it doesn't correctly detect the memory speed, I had to go into the BIOS and change it from Auto to 1333Mhz. After doing that I've had no further problems.
After 2 Gigabyte GA-880GM-D2H motherboards died I felt it was time to change brands. I wanted something inexpensive with SATA, IDE and floppy interfaces, this board has all that. I put in my AMD phenom 4 960T, 2 SATA dvd burners, 2 SATA hard drives, 2 IDE drives, 8 gigs of ram and a floppy drive all powered by an OCZ 650 watt power supply. I can run either linux or windows 7.For the money it is a great board especially if you have older IDE drives.
