  • Gigabyte Tools; Gigabyte C.O.M., EasyTune Pro 5@BIOS, Gigabyte FaceWizard, Gigabyte i-Cool and DMIView
  • Adobe Reader and DirectX 9.0C
  • Kapersky Anti-Virus
  • Nortonís Internet Security 2007

Gigabyteís software bundle is outstanding with the EasyTune Pro 5 being Gigabyteís overclocking utility in Windows. Gigabyte has included two different anti-virus software suites: Kapersky Anti-Virus and Nortonís Internet Security software to protect your computer against viruses. Adobe Reader and DirectX 9.0C are filler software. Most people are moving to Vista, meaning that DX10 will be included with their new computers.

Hardware wise Gigabyte has gone the minimalist route, giving enough hardware to get the computer started but not enough to fully take advantage of the motherboard without additional cable purchase.
