Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L


$130.00 Released May, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Perfect arrangement of PCI/PCIe slots. Quality board components. Affordable price.

The Cons:Only a single PCIe 16x slot - cannot be used for enthusiast gaming builds. No onboard video (like AMD/ATI, Nvidia based, or even some Intel GMA motherboards). Not many high end features (expected for the price).

The GA-EP45-DS3L is an ATX-form motherboard from Gigabyte, using the Intel P45 chipset architecture.  It is similar to the GA-EP45-DS3 board, except that it has only a single x16 PCI-E graphics slot and features 8-channel HD Audio.
