That's Gigabyte alright ^^

I wonder what the price range will be, i'm expecting around 400 Euros.

I'm also questioning onboard sound, even tho it's creative. I think it will never be as good as a dedicated soundcard.

Also that small Fan is a deal breaker for me.

I'm sure Gigabyte will come with some more boards. I'm thinking more around 200-250 ish for a Motherboard.

Stepping away from the "gun/clip" heat sinks is a good sign, but whats with the 40mm fan Gigabyte? Why?
