I wouldn't have gone with the ECS motherboard, you would have been better off with something like Asus or EVGA.

Other than that, it looks alright.

i was so close to buying an ECS board on boxing day at tiger direct for this guy i was building a computer for. it was only like 80 bucks, had everything. i went for XFX because the stupid ECS only had pci 8x in a 16x slot form factor

Well, I would have posted this thread before you actually ordered the stuff.

Get ready to return that ECS motherboard after you start having problems with it.
