thats actually a good board, I use Gigabyte mobos for my system, and have yet to have any problems with them, not including the power spike that killed my mobo and psu. gigabyte makes great boards IMO and for the pricing you really can't go wrong.

I guess the main thing to really look at when you purchase a new mobo for a prebuilt machine, is to look at the MOBO specs on dimensions and compare them to the one currently in your case. Not all cases will accept just any board. so you might want to take that into consideration before making your purchase.

one more thing to take into consideration on that board. if your case has front USB ports and you use the 4 additional (cabled) usb ports, you will not be able to use the front ones. so you have a choice between 6 usb ports (4 in back 2 on front) or 8 usb ports (8 in back).

it depends on where your getting your info. usually that should be found with the specs informaiton on what ever site your looking at. Another way to find out what that out is to call a comuter parts store and ask them for that info. if they want your business they will have no problems opening a box to check in the manual.
