Have many people tried installing Windows 7 on a 780g chipset motherboard (particularly the Gigabyte ones GA-MA78GPM-xxx) ?

Keen to try out Windows 7 but cant see any drivers on the Gigabyte website for my motherboard GA-MA78GPM-DS2H.

Does the graphics and sound work ok? Specifically do the Radeon drivers work fine for the HD chipset and thereby allowing HD video playback with low CPU usage? The sound will be just via stereo speakers so dont need complete HD output support etc...

Cheers!
 
Thanks for the reply Andy.
EDIT: Found a Southbridge driver link on the game.adm.com site but this was only for Vista - these work ok on Windows 7?

I dont want to install unless I know I can get a stable system.

Cheers!

I've had W7 on my 780G chipset working for the last month with no problems, nice and stable.
