Cons

only two slots for RAM, forcing more expensive larger-capacity memory to be purchased

1 agrees

low on expansion card slots, can't add too much

1 agrees

PCI slot very close to the PCI-E slot, thicker video card will crowd it out

The Gigabyte GA-G41MT-ES2L 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. It builds from the GA-G41MT-D3 by adding along high-definition audio with support for 2, 4, 5.1, and 7.1-channel audio via S/PDIF. Like its counterpart, the GA-G41MT-ES2L hosts two dual-channel 1066/800MHZ DDR3 memory module slots, four 3GB/s SATA ports, and support for Gigabit LAN and USB 2.0. There's also advanced USB Power Boost technology for quicker iphone/ipod/ipad charging, and integrated graphics, though a third-party card (assuming enough space) is required for HDMI and DVI connectivity.
