Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R


$90.00 Released April, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Stylish, colourful aesthetic looks great in windowed cases. BIOS is very amenable to adjustment, relative to other Gigabyte models. Easy access to SATA connectors with lots of room around each.

The Cons:ATX12v connection is a bit of a stretch for bottom-PSU cases. BIOS has a somewhat steep learning curve and individual settings must be taken off AUTO mode.

The Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R is an ATX format motherboard that accepts Intel CPUs in LGA 775 format. This is nearly identical to the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3LR, with one less PCI-E x1 slot and the addition of FireWire support.

Where to Buy

This is a lower cost alternative to the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P, enabling construction of a home media PC that will work with a video camera that uses FireWire. This motherboard has one PCI-E x16 and a single 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, but otherwise the two boards are very similar. 6 SATA connections are available with full RAID support, and high definition audio is available through coaxial or optical ports that can run directly to a home entertainment system.
