The GIGABYTE GA-8I945GMH-RH is a 945 class board. It compares slightly slower in performance to the ECS 945G board which is overclocked by default meaning the ECS board is slightly higher performing. I also included performance metrics from the onboard graphics. One thing about the lack of onboard audio is that Sysmark 2004 would not complete a test run without audio.
