    Anyone used a Gigabyte S3 yet?

    I've been following the experiences of users upgrading to Core 2 Duo platforms on this forum as well as keeping an eye on motherboard and CPU prices. I have noticed that Gigabyte have a budget 965P board available from Scan - the GA-965P-S3. I am wanting to know if anyone has used this board and if so what they make of it, I know that it lacks some of the kit of other boards but it could make a good platform for a powerful budget system.

    I have no personal experience of it, but I think that would be fine.

    But also consider something like the ASRock 945 conroe board:

    as a good budget option.
