Gigabyte GA-G41MT-ES2L


$100.00 Released January, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Well built, installs easily and everything fits together well. Handles a wide array of CPUs, old and new. Able to do plenty of tweaks in the BIOS, get things fine-tuned exactly how you like it.

The Cons:Only two slots for RAM, forcing more expensive larger-capacity memory to be purchased. PCI slot very close to the PCI-E slot, thicker video card will crowd it out. Low on expansion card slots, can't add too much.

The Gigabyte GA-G41MT-ES2L is an entry-level, micro-ATX motherboard that uses the Intel G41 chipset and supports common 45nm Intel CPUs including Core 2, Pentium, and Celeron. It builds from the GA-G41MT-D3 by adding along high-definition audio with support for 2, 4, 5.1, and 7.1-channel audio via S/PDIF.

Like its counterpart, the GA-G41MT-ES2L hosts two dual-channel 1066/800MHZ DDR3 memory module slots, four 3GB/s SATA ports, and support for Gigabit LAN and USB 2.0. There's also advanced USB Power Boost technology for quicker iphone/ipod/ipad charging, and integrated graphics, though a third-party card (assuming enough space) is required for HDMI and DVI connectivity.
