The Gigabyte GA-G41M-Combo is an entry-level, micro-ATX motherboard that uses the Intel G41 chipset and supports common 45nm Intel CPUs including Core 2, Pentium, and Celeron. As a specialty combo board, the GA-G41M-Combo supports both dual-channel DDR2 and DDR3, though populating both memory modules simultaneously is not supported. Featured is base-level integrated graphics w/VGA connectivity, base-level audio (5.1-channel max), Gigabit LAN, and USB(8) / eSATA(4) port support. The board is essentially either for novice builders trying to learn, or a user just wanting to replace—but not upgrade—his current system.
