Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 945G Express Core 2 Duo Motherboard Review

Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 945G Express Core 2 Duo Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Core 2 Duo compatible Intel 945G Express northbridge is ideal for cash-strapped consumers and not so great for AMD... as we'll see with the Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 motherboard.

By combining high quality 3D tests, CPU tests, feature tests, image quality tools, and much more, 3DMark05 is a premium benchmark for evaluating the latest generation of gaming hardware.
