    it got last place in almost every performance test :shadedshu and for some reason i doubt this actually had anything to do with it being ECS!

    if you are on a tight budget and dont run many games you probably wont notice the few percent. you may notice the difference between "can afford pc" and "can not afford pc" though :)

    yea i know how that is i have several ECS mobos i was pointing out though i do not think that the performance loss has anything to do with ECS i dont think this is a very good chipset sadly enough

    At least your an honest Reviewer Wizzard, by that I mean they didn't give you any extra money or anything like that to make there board seem better.;)

    I always have this suspension that reviewers are given an extra bit of cash to be... a little more lenient.

    Great job Wizzard, very much apprciated.

    dosen;t seem bad to me for 70 bucks, i mean it like a frame or 2 away from the other motherboards on the charts and can be used for quad processing as well. a few people on newegg are using this board and phemons too.
