Comparing :

GA H61 D2 B3
&
GA H61 DS2

Which is better for gaming with i3 2100? <no other options>

GA H61 DS2 provides:

"Support for PCI Express Gen.3
The GIGABYTE motherboard is fully configured to provide gamers with the latest Gen.3 PCI Express technology, delivering maximum data bandwidth for forthcoming discrete graphics cards.
*PCIe Gen. 3 is dependent on CPU and expansion card compatibility."

my queries on this:

What cpu & dGpu it is taking of being compatible? Mention them.

GA H61 D2 B3 provides: Advanced 108 audio to noise ratio. REALTEK ALC 889

Not sure if the other one provides it or not.
 
Solution
The DS2 would only use PCIe 3 with an Ivy Bridge CPU and a 7xxx/6xx series graphics card or later, and doesn't really provide any performance advantage. The sound differences are almost non-existent. So get whatever is cheaper.

i dont think upgrading it later to ivy n the dgpu i will be using is 5670, so for me both are equal as concluded from ur post. Perhaps then lets see whatever is cheaper in the store.


thanks!
