After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
As was mentioned before the Gigabyte GA-880GMA is built on the AMD 880G Chipset and comes with a Radeon HD4250 graphics processor. This GPU does not have the power to be a gaming powerhouse but can support some light 3D tasks, video decoding, and general office applications. If you happen to need a more graphics power the board comes with a 16x PCIe 2.0 graphics slot that will accept any modern video card and also gives you the option for CrossfireX with the onboard GPU.
Dual Monitor Support
System Tuning via BIOS
Small PWM limits total system power
No heatsinks on PWM
PCI Express layout not ideal for dual high power video cards
