In all, the Gigabyte GA-8SIML is a reasonably good performer for the value P4 market, though really how can you have a value P4 market with the CPU costing the most out of the entire system. Looking at setting up a P4 system with 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, P4 1.8AGHz you are looking at around retail (AUD) $190 for a Seagate Barracuda 40GB HDD, $200 for the board, $150 for 256MB DDR SDRAM and a whopping $460 for the CPU. That's a bit steep. With rumors of the P4 Celeron (cheaper version of the P4), this board could be an alternative providing the P4 Celeron is 478-pin.
Moderately priced for budget board
Lack of AGP or DIMM voltage adjustments
Very little overclocking with available options
Some compatibility problems with external PCI cards on PCI #3
Rating - 7/10
