Building a PC - bundle suggestions

Discussion in 'Gigabyte' started by Phat_Jethro, Dec 13, 2010.

  1. I built a system around the GA 790XTA-UD4 and Phenom II 965 Black. The
    Gigabyte
    board was a big disappointment, mostly because it takes so long to boot (Win
    XP). A
    friend also bought that board, and his also takes a long time to boot (Win
    XP), about
    a minute and a half to be specific. Then I found online references to
    others complaining
    about the slow boot of the Gigabyte. Let the buyer beware.

    I replaced the Gigabyte mobo with the Asrock 890FX Deluxe 4 and it was the
    smartest
    move I ever made. The Asrock is heads and shoulders above the Gigabyte, and
    even
    offers the option to boot in 7 seconds or less. I liked the Asrock so much
    I bought a
    second one and made another PC, using the AMD 6 core cpu. Fantatic board.
