Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P


$131.00 Released March, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:BIOS is clearly set up, everything is easy to find and intuitive. Can save various BIOS settings for easy experimentation. Overclocking of every little component is easy and intelligently laid out to let you weigh the options.

The Cons:Takes a couple of reboots to get a loaded BIOS setting to apply. Not ideal for a dual video card setup. No power LEDs, something that has become a standard in this class.
