One other thing to be aware of - with some Gigabyte boards, when chosing
the BIOS backup option from the BIOS menu, the backup gets stored on a
reserved area of the first HD. This is really nasty and a bitch to get rid
of - I ended up using one of the tools on Bart's boot CD site to remove the
reserved area. Other than that, I'm very happy with the two systems I have
with EP35-DS3R boards.
