Gigabyte GA-880GM-D2H


$59.00 Released June, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:A good starting point for a mid-level gaming machine. PCI-E x16 2.0 - not limited to the older 1.0 spec. Good overclocking options in the BIOS.

The Cons:Limited to only 8GB of memory. Poor documentation - the included manual can be difficult to follow at times. Uses a non-standard mATX design - uses less holes on one side of the board.

The Gigabyte GA-880GM-D2H is a low-cost Micro ATX format motherboard that supports AM3 processors. While all major PC functions are supported directly by the motherboard, expandability is limited by slower memory access and a reduced number of PCI-E slots.
