"PCSTATS really liked what we saw from Gigabyte's Intel Z77 based GA-Z77X-UD4H motherboard -- the board graciously offers up a comprehensive feature set, its layout and implementation are well executed and the build quality is first rate. The board offers up two PCI Express x16 slots for two-way graphics card set ups in x8/x8 mode, single graphics cards will run in x16 mode. Graphics cards will run at PCI Express Gen 2.0 or PCI Express Gen 3.0 support depending on the CPU architecture and videocard - the platform is PCI-E 3.0 compliant.
Four 1.5v DDR-3 memory slots accommodate up to 32GB of dual channel DDR3-1600/1333/1066 RAM and include support for Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP) if that's important to you. On the graphics front we have a couple options: dual monitor integrated graphics via the onboard video outputs, one or two discrete videocards in SLI/CrossfireX and finally, a mix of discrete and integrated graphics care of LucidLogix VirtuMVP."
There is a lot of free Microsoft software to be had, programs which enable better web surfing and help protect against spyware are just two types. PCSTATS Tips
