    Asus M4N68T-M V2 vs. GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 R2 Motherboards

    Hello all, The situation I'm having with these motherboards. The Asus, I've been running for quite sometime now (about 5 years) and it took a crap on me recently (the LAN speed just dropped dramatically - I did everything I need to get the download/upload speed back then, I knew something was wrong with the mobo). Then, I bought the Gigabyte motherboard and this motherboard is crazy because the SATA sockets where my hardware plugs in, is not matching what the BIOS is saying. I'm having a hell of a time installing Windows 10 on it. I did at one point successfully installed it but, it won't boot correctly (the LAN speed on this board is good. I finally got my speeds back when I installed this new mobo but, now it won't load correctly. The Asus M4N68T-M V2 mobo, ran Windows 10 just fine... thinking of going back. I've done my research on this Gigabyte board and I've found a post in New Egg saying, 'to make sure you have Legacy turned on' - I've been looking all over the BIOS for this option and I can't find it. - I'm thinking of returning this Gigabyte mobo and go back to the ASUS motherboard.Do I make sense? LOL..:) well, enough rambling. Anyways, I've joined this forum to get some help with my situation and I'm really am pulling my hairs just to get this new mobo going. - I think, Im going to buy the old mobo that I had before (ASUS M4N68T-M V2) and return this Gigabyte mobo back to newegg.Suggestions? Thanks in advance.GeoX

    PS: I've put my system where it needs to go in my profile. Please view my set up. Don't laugh, I'm just a 'wannabe'

    Typing this response from an Asus M4N68T-M V2 µATX Motherboard with an AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition. Been using this PC for a long time now, its my main desktop. I've thought about buying a new setup just never pulled the trigger. I've owned one GigaByte motherboard and it was a PITA to setup. I never did get it working and returned it. Windows installed Ok but I had all kinds of hardware issues in device manager. Haven't touched that brand since. That was a long time ago though. I'm no expert but as far as I know you shouldn't have to switch a motherboard into legacy to install Windows. I don't on my two UEFI laptops. They are pretty well the way they came from the factory. All I've done is change the boot order and disabled a few boot options I'd never use.
