Introduction and Specifications
The Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 motherboard offers Intel Core 2 processor support for a much lower price than the other motherboards we have reviewed here. Is it worth putting into your next system?
The Intel P965 chipset is quickly gaining ground as the top choice for Core 2 processor buyers due to its strong performance as well as lower prices. Just a week or so ago, we reviewed the Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard that uses this same chipset; and you’ll see it in our comparisons here. The Gigabyte GA-P965-DS3 motherboard is a very basic solution, lacking a lot of the features we have seen in other products, but makes up for it in pricing.
The DS3 has much to offer possible Intel Core 2 Duo buyers, even without a huge feature list.
