"From experience, I am confident about buying Gigabyte motherboards. My board of the last year and a half was a Gigabyte, it was an exceptional performer, but it didn’t overclock. Back then, though, I wasn’t interested in such things and since it only cost £35 I was very happy with it. So the logical choice for this years board was Gigabyte.
My new toy the GA-7VA r2, from their budget range, cost me just £43 from dabs.com - again great value from Gigabyte. It sports AGP 8x, DDR400 and a Via KT400A chipset."
