The two Gigabyte boards run again almost neck and neck with each other. The I845G chipset seems to still have slightly more power even at DDR-266 levels than the I845E. Compared to the other boards on the market they are running very close.
Business Winstone tests your computer's word processing, spreadsheet and presentation application ability using Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Both Content Creation and Business Winstone 2001 give you great examples of real-world performance
Content Creation tests your computer's ability to create and manipulate images, webpages etc using real world programs such as Photoshop and Dreamweaver, then gives you an overall score.
Again the two Gigabyte boards run almost identical to each other.
