Well, obviously you won't be buying one of these new any more, but if you're putting together a cheap PC for your mom to surf the web or whatever, don't hesitate to use one of these things. In my honest opinion it's excellent. (read more)

I have a GA-7VRX board, Athlon 1800+ CPU and TNT2 AGP video card. My system always goes down after playing 2 or three movies. I reinstalled the system several times and it's still like that. Until I found this site did I know it was this board that causes problems. (read more)

The Gigabyte GA-7VRX motherboard proved to be the downfall of my computer. This computer went in 3 times before it finally took a really big dive. They were telling me it was the AGP card, so I kept buying new cards. No, come to find out from this website, it is most probable that its the board. Now it locked up in the OS and is refusing to load it again after the reboot. There was no mods or over-clocking involved. Do not count on this motherboard. (read more)

I have experienced no other problems at all. have the fsb at 148 with no prob, havent gone higher because of no need too. I Love this motherboard and highly recommmend it. Rating quality at nine just cause there are other better motherboards such as kt400 boards. but this is... (read more)

My GA-7VRX is running an Athlon Palamino 1900 Mhz processor , with 256 Meg DDR Ram (un-certified), standard clock speed . I got round the lockup problem by hitting the reset button at the end of the first boot attempt. AGP card is a Gigabyte AG32S (Rage 128), a budget 3d model . The overclock utility for the rage 128 card fails to install correctly , another black mark for Gigabyte , I suspected the video card as faulty until I found this review site, thanks guys I can go back to my ...

Having read all the previous points, I will submit my review.. I attempted to rebuild a friend's pc using a gigabyte GA-7IXEA motherboard. The graphic card is a sparkle nvidida 32 meg. With win98SE it crashed, with ME it crashed, with win2k it crashed and with winXP, you guessed it it crashed. In other words, every OS crashed before fully installed. The cpu is an athlon 850. I'm about to change the m/board to ASUS. Does anyone have any tips? (read more)

I have ga-7vrx, amd ath 1800+ t-bred(1.53ghz), and samsung 512mb pc2700 ram. Regardless of multiplier setting(on board) I could not speed up the fsb anywhere near 166 without serious problems ie no post no boot no restart etc. Therefore my pc2700 ram capable of 333mhz must run at 266 and my cpu can only be bumped up to 2000+(1.67ghz) (using just the multiplier set at 12.5). Maybe I misunderstood the meaning of KT333(duh). Also there is major system instability when running the ram at CL2 so... (read more)

I had an athlon 1800 xp with 512mb ddr ram, 60 gig hard drive and sb live 5.1 sound card on this main board. I decided to upgrade my graphic card from a voodoo 3 3000 pci to an nvidia ge force 2 mmx agp card. I installed the card and drivers and the system kept locking up in 3d applications. I reinstalled both card and drivers but still the same locking up. I bought another agp card, this time the nvidia ge force 2 titanium, this one worked well for a few minutes before locking up, I tried... (read more)

According to most reviews and benchmarks the GA-7VRX motherboard fron Gigabyte is the best KT333 board around and I tend to agree. The only problem I had is it was incompatible with Samsung PC 2700 RAM and unless you buy high end memory like OCZ or Corsair, it will only work with Nanya consistently. That means that if you want to run it for performance you'll need to buy RAM that's expensive. Still, it performs as well or better than most KT400 boards and utterly destroys all other KT333 boards.

The gigabyte GA-7VRX motherboard works great, even with my Geforce 4 mx440 and my amd 2100xp and 512 Mb DDR memory. I would recommend it to everyone building their own pc. (read more)

This Gigabyte GA-7VRX is the perfect mainboard for gamers who already have a good sound card, NIC etc and just want good value for money. As long as you're not an extreme overclocker, this board is fast, stable and compatible (mine is revision 2.0. Apparently ver 1.0 didn't like GF4 MXs). There is no fan on the north bridge which may be why the FSB doesn't overclock too well but of course not having another fan also means less noise. (I hate noisy PCs) (read more)

This Gigabyte GA-7VRX motherboard just rocks! I have purchased 7 mainboards this year, most being budget boards and I'll tell you this board seems very solid! After replacing every damn board I purchased this year all which were based on an awful sis chipset I decided to just replace them with a Via based board. This was the only VIA board my OEM dealer had in stock on a Monday so I bought it without a second care for its features and quality. I build the machine and it has the fastest post... (read more)

See the good points and bad points. If anyone can help with what I might have done wrong to get no on board sound, please post a comment on my review. I installed the drivers, they show up in system info, device manager. My speakers are plugged into the speaker jack in the back. Other than the sound, I too heard a negative comment about this board from a co-worker but decided to try it for myself. I'm very satisfied except for the sound problem and I'm sure I'll figure that out somehow. I... (read more)

I know that there has been a lot of bad reviews posted on the Internet about this Gigabyte Motherboard but I have had it for a while now and have put it through everything, 3D Benchmarks, over 90 different games, LANing, hours on the net, even being left on for days on end and it has not had one fault, not one, it is fast, extremely reliable, and definately value for money and anyone who thinks otherwise should send an e-mail to email@example.com.

I basically included the Gigabyte GA-7VRX motherboard to see if anyone had any comments about the differences between this and the 7VRXP. I'm getting it from an online reseller for 74.00 but for the life of me I can't find any other docs other then the specs at the manufacture's web site. I expect it to run well with the Athlon XP 1600 CPU. After it's installed and running I'll let everyone know what I think. (read more)
