For a budget PC your looking for a Z series Intel or FM3+ AMD board. Our Z170 Gaming 7 is Red/White, but maybe on the upper end of "budget". Our AMD 970-Gaming SLI is red/black. Obviously you have a lot more choices in motherboard, just throwing those out there. The Gaming 7 is one hell of a board if you can swing it.
A Place for all the Gigabyte Giveaways and Competition.
I hope you make here in some thread a way for you and the users to post all the Gigabyte competitions, raffles, contest, giveaways and sweepstakes around Internet.
That way we all can be participating in the forum and also knowing about what's happening around Gigabyte all over the world.
That's our goal. We are looking to make this a one stop shop for all things GIGABYTE. We are also going to be giving you guys sneak peaks / early access to a lot of our promotions, giveaways, new products etc... but we need your help! If you have any questions, ideas, ways to improve let us know. These forums are for you - our fans - and our job is to make them as useful as possible!
