GigaByte GA-970A-D3 Review

This is a good mother board for the price. If you don't really want to do anything extra fancy like me but just want to build a solid pc then this is a good mother board if you're looking to go the cheaper route. The USB 3.0 on a motherboard this price is definitely a plus. The space between the pci slots is also well spaced for those who want to eventually add on another graphics card. My only warning with this is that if you are using the newer FX Bulldozer processors then be sure that you flash the thing or else it won't even be able to power up. For a first time builder like myself it was a good learning experience but for others this may save them a lot of headache.
