I'm a newbie to gigabyte motherboards. So far I have had no problems\nwith the board. I have a P35C-DS3R.\n\nMy prior motherboards have been ASUS. And I was able to understand what\nthe naming of a motherboard meant.\n\nPlease correct me if I am wrong!\n\nP35C-DS3R\n\nP35 relates to the Intel P35 chipset. I'm happy with that.\nI have no idea what the C means.\nDS3 - seems to be able to use DDR3 RAM\n\nthen the R on the end? What does that mean?\n\nThis is my first foray into Gigabyte Motherboards, and so far I am quite\nhappy.I was having very tricky problems with my old ASUS board using\nVista, so they swapped the motherboard. My problems seemed to go away.I\nwould like to how things go.
