My last Gigabyte board was a GA-P35C-DS3R and it had some CMOS checksum issues that I never did get corrected. Basically the motherboard failed. Its the only retail motherboard I have ever owned that failed on me. Still Im willing to give Gigabyte another shot.
Having said that you still have Intel, ASRock and Asus to choose from.
What about MSI? I'd take an MSI board over a Gigabyte board these days.
