Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The Gigabyte G31M-ES2L is simply excellent value for money. I have used nine of them,although only one via PCW. They are very stable, they have few compatibility problems and have the overclocking options of much more expensive boards. Currently I have the following processors installed E2160(@2.8), E6300, E5400, E7500 and a Celron 3300 (@3.8). If you care to check the net out about them -always a good idea-you will find a lot of praise for this entry level board. Two of the boards have been in use for nearly two years now and faultless. Takes Sata or Ide drives.
Bad points:
Some memory problems with Mushkin but otherwise good.
For reasons I don't fully understand If you want to over clock make sure the boot drive is on the primary sata channel.
