Well the IGP is crap but the capabilities and specs on this board look nice. Obviously AMD isnt going for Tri Channel Memory on the P2 which is sort of a shame. Intel already shows how greatly improved it is for it.

To be fair i have a HD3200 in my laptop using system ram for memory and it manages to play sins of a solar empire, wow, supreme commander all fine with medium to low settings at 1280x800, so even though it isn't anywhere near as good as a decent discrete card it is always nice to have a backup in case that pencil mod doesn't go too well... ;)

color scheme is ugly. they should stick with just 2 colors ie yellow/orange or black/red. 3 colors looks ugly. But regardless, i just dont see myself buying an ECS board, their quality is usually mediocre.

I have the GF8200A Black edition. Its a nice stable board but they failed me with their pathetic Voltage settings and because of that my 9500 could not be OCd past 2.7Ghz. Also they don't have NB multi setting. Ofcourse you can get away with a Black edition CPU. But still their Bios sucks and I am going to stop buying their so called Performance boards. I am going to stick with Biostar.

What's wrong with the IGP on this? It has a 3300 and will run both hybrid and crossfireX. Did I miss something?

Well I still I don't see a 4 series IGP happening in near future since rs880 is going to be an rv620 anyways if I remember right?
