Overclockers Club writes: "There is an abundance of consumers who don't need all of the flashy accessories and features that come with a number of high-end motherboards these days. It definitely seems like overkill, doesn't it? Some users don't need the motherboard with insane overclocking features or excessive cooling. Gigabyte has answered this call with the all new Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R motherboard. Not only does it feature the newer Intel P45 chipset, it also has almost all of Gigabyte's standard features, including the Dynamic Energy Saver feature. With the price hovering around one hundred and thirty dollars, this motherboard carries a mid-range price point but what will the performance be like? Will the performance be worth more than what the motherboard costs? Let's see how it does when compared against some higher end P45 motherboards. Join me as I thoroughly examine the Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R standard ATX motherboard."
