PCI EXPRESS IS undoubtedly the future of PC peripherals, and with even budget motherboards hopping on the PCI-E train, upgrading to support the new standard doesn't have to be an expensive proposition. Gigabyte's new GA-K8VT890-9 carries a suggested retail price of only $82—30-120% less than other PCI Express Athlon 64 platforms we've reviewed. $82 obviously doesn't buy a peripheral-packed board loaded with extra goodies, but if you're looking for a no-frills package at a budget price, the GA-K8VT890-9's intelligent spec might just be good enough. Read on to see what the board has to offer and how it compares with more expensive Athlon 64 platforms.
