I agree - for some reason it reminds me of some of gigabytes old P4 prescott core mobos. my dad still runs one downstairs & his mobo looks exactly the same

The design sucks, for a start the 2 PCI slots at the bottom should have been moved one slot further down to make both the PCI slots useable when running 2 graphics card.

The board layout isnt that bad, not perfect, but not terrible either. As for it looking "basic", who cares? Less there is on it less chance of it going wrong. All the board needs is a few fan headers near the NB and SB to add some active cooling, and some OC options in its BIOS and it could turn into quite a surprise.
