Advice on GA-G31M-S2L

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone had any good experience on this board specifically. Good/bad?

Its very tempting because I need an office computer with average OCing ability. Think a e2180 can do 3.0 on it?

LINK

If anyone has any better suggestions please shoot. Looking for a MB with onboard video, <2 sata ports, 2 x PCI and <$70-80

No im not but it seems to have all the stuff that I need for a VERY reasonable price. If you guys have anything better (mATX, ATX or anything else) try me. Im open for ideas.

That's definitely the best board for the price. Gigabyte makes great boards. Even the cheap ones. Check out my E2180 overclock on an even cheaper Gigabyte board in the E2**** thread from Linskingdom in my sig. (though I would recommend your GA-G31M-S2L) over the one I used. Good luck
