ECS X77H2-A3 Motherboard Pictured

ECS revealed its newest value-segment LGA1155 motherboard based on the Z77 Express chipset, the X77H2-A3. Pictured below, the X77H2-A3 is a variation of the Z77H2-A3, with ECS' Super Alloy Chokes powering the CPU VRM, an all solid-state capacitor design, golden-colored VRM and PCH heatsinks, and slightly darker piano-black PCB. Besides these four, the X77H2-A3 is identical to the Z77H2-A3. It features a 4+1 phase CPU VRM, single PCI-Express 3.0 x16 expansion slot, two SATA 6 Gb/s, four SATA 3 Gb/s, four USB 3.0 ports (two front-panel, two rear), and display outputs that include DVI and D-Sub. Expect this model to be slightly pricier than its cousin.

They could probably go a little cheaper and do away with the PCI slots...I'm not even sure what they still sell that uses PCI slots that's not cheaper as a faster USB or PCI-E version...

Because people like me don't want to buy some stupidly expensive sound card when they have good one on PCI and I got a TV tuner that is doing the job for me and don't want to buy new one. I hope you got the picture now.
