    Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), is ready with an ATX motherboard based on the NVIDIA nForce 730i (MCP7A-S) chipset, the ECS GF9300T-A Black Series. The motherboard gets its Black Series tag from the range of boards ECS makes, which offer great value for their features, performance and board design.

    The GF9300T-A comes with support for all Intel LGA-775 processors, with FSB of 1333 MHz. It supports DDR2-800 memory. It features a GeForce 9300-class IGP, which is expandable with the provided PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot. Apart from a D-Sub connector, a HDMI port is provided. HybridPower and GeForce Boost technologies are supported. It features six SATA-II ports, three PCI and two PCI-E x1 slots.

    You cant beat ECS - i had an nForce motherboard back in my 5000+BE days. Absolutely spot on board, cheap, rock solid and it looked damn good too (was deep purple). As a matter of fact i re-used it in a build a few weeks ago and hes had no problems yet!

    Go ECS go! :D

    Are you running a $1500 CPU on this board? MCP7 isn't officially supporting FSB1600 chips.

    It says it supports all 1333 CPUs. It will probably also support 1600 CPUs. It just doesnt say it will RUN THEM at top speed. You will be underclocking them. LOL

    I wish ECS would use solid caps.. I really like their boards but I cant stand non-solids anymore.

    Meh these days solid caps are used as mainly a marketing ploy. A good set of electrolytic caps will always be better than a crappy set of solid caps. In ECS's case, they've used solid caps around the phases, as well as ferrite chokes, so I'd say that its safe as this is where eletrolytic capacitors usually fail most frequently.'

    Its a value oriented board anyway. Nice how they cut down on the circuitry with the single chipset only. At least it comes with onboard power and reset buttons lol.
