    There are several socket 754 motherboards made by Gigabyte, but none of them are any good. The socket 939 one isn't bad, but it's pricy, and the MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum is better, for the most part.

    For socket 754 motherboards, there are really only four choices I'd consider, even if you're not an overclocker.
    The DFI LANPARTY UT is quite simply the best performer and overclocker, hands down. If you intend to overclock, get it.
    The Chiantech VNF3-250 is a great performer, a great overclocker, and the cheapest thing anyone looking at a socket 754 system should even consider.
    The Epox 8KDA3+ is a good motherboard, but quite frankly it doesn't have anything over the DFI and not much over the MSI K8N Neo Platinum, which cost less.
    Which brings me to the final choice, the MSI K8N Neo Platinum.

    I'd suggest the Chaintech or DFI, depending on the budget. Gigabyte just doesn't have any motherboards worth considering in the socket 754 market. Avoid going by brand when it comes to motherboards. You have to read the reviews and find the best ones; you can't just decide to get a certain brand because you think it's the best, if you want to make a good purchase anyway,

    Well, you won't be dissapointed with that socket 939 Gigabyte board (don't consider a socket 940, though), but don't consider unless you can get it for under $150 U.S.
