    "The Gigabyte K8U-939 is a socket 939 motherboard, based on the ULi M1689 chipset. It has an AGP slot instead of a PCI-E one and works with DDR RAM, so users with older socket A/478 motherboards can upgrade to it without having to upgrade their RAM and GFX as well. It also features Dual Channel DDR, can support the newest X2 Dual Core processors and 64-bit technology so it is striving to be a competitive solution for those who are thinking about upgrading without spending a fortune. The low price of the motherboard certainly adds to that, but can it compete at all with high-end motherboards in regards to performance?"

    A very good review, Grace. Note to Zardon: Either I'm a little slow this morning, or those charts redraw too often.

    Interesting product for the price. If they fix the 1T bug (I hope it's a BIOS bug), it'll probably become even more interesting.
