    Default Which Download sites?

    Hi Everyone!

    I've just purchased a EP45-UDP3 which will be part of my first build! I think I'm going to have several questions but the first one is pretty basic.

    I've just gone and looked at the Gigabyte download page for my mobo and I find that the download site for "America" is slooooow! 10kbs slooow! All download sites were that way except for the Europe (Russia) http which was blazing away at 200 to 600 kbs!

    Question is, can I use that download site successfully or will I wind up with some sort of catastrophe like updates in Cyrrilic or something?!? :-)

    Thanks,

    Larry

    Hi NimrodAUS,

    I tried the ftp link but got no response! Then I tried the http link and got terrific download speeds.

    Well, if you're using the downloads from the ftp link without problem, then the downloads from the http link should be the same thing.

    Perhaps someone else could offer some additional feedback? Maybe the Gigabyte rep?

    Anyway, thanks a lot for your response!

    Yeah Sometimes the FTP doesnt work, but theres no doubt that it would be the same. I think all the links will have the same files, so dont stress.

    Ok NimrodAUS........I'll try not to stress....

    I also thought they would all be the same, but just wasn't sure.

    If anybody else wants to chime in though.............

    Thanks again for the feedback!

    Yes they are all the same, unless of course if you grab a manual or something and choose a different language first.

    I personally always use the Russian FTP as well as I find it the fastest
