ECS A790GXM-A


$180.00 Released January, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Fast enough to be used with high end RAM and video cards as a gaming machine. Offers full multiplier control for unlocked CPUs. Allows full control of the system's resources, ideal for advanced users that know what they're doing.

The Cons:BIOS gets a little unstable when overclocked, need to be careful with settings. Some compatibility issues with Windows 7, included software isn't compatible - need to go to the website to download the latest to get it working right. Included software doesn't work well with RAID setups, better off using the Windows-based RAID drivers.
