Video card users who are not techies see a full length slot and assume it works at full speeds.
this is a 4x 1.0 or 1.1 slot (unspecified) which is definately NOT good for gaming, or 3D rendering using a dedicated card.
The amount of users who add RAID cards is low to begin with, let alone people who do so on budget microATX boards.
Gigabyte also have a series of motherboards with a PCI-E 2.0 16x slot for video, and a 4x open ended slot for crossfire or RAID cards. why cant users with specialised needs buy specialised boards, instead of giga crippling them?
as Erocker has said, feel free to discuss (even heatedly) your cases, but under no circumstances are personal attacks going to be ignored.
