The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.

The Intel P45 chipset appears to be the hands-down successor to the venerable P35, the chipset that was the mainstay of motherboards designed for the Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad for all of 2007. The P45 has proven to be an all-around LGA 775 chipset qui...
Good Many features found in a fullfeatured motherboard, Effective passive chipset cooling, Decent overclocker, Excellent price...
Bad None that I found, any feature missing on this board would not be expected on a $108 Gigabyte board...
Bottom line These days, you get more and more from an economy motherboard. At one time a low-end board necessarily meant a stripped down, barebones affair, but thats not so now. The Gigabyte EP45-DS3L shares many features with its more expensive brothers. Passiv...

Although the Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L doesnt support ATIs CrossFire multi-GPU technology, has no FireWire ports, and builds in just one RJ45 port (most motherboards in its class have two), what the board lacks in features it makes up for in price and...
Good Amazing price/performance ratio. Stable and compatible. Has overclocking-friendly Dynamic Energy Saver Advanced. Lets you make fine CPU voltage adjustements.
Bad No frills. No CrossFire support, FireWire. Single RJ45 input only.
Bottom line This Gigabyte motherboard doesn?t support is easy on the wallet and speedy on the benchmarks. Low feature count; no CrossFire support; socketed front panel connector is somewhat annoying...
