Which Mboard would you pick if u were me?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, first off, I would really like to eventually run a crossfire setup. Second, I would prefer NOT to use anything nvidia if possible. But, if I'm going to have problems with the ATI board simply because of how new it is, I'd rather use nvidia if I'll have less problems. Notice also that the ATI board, though its as new as it is (and looks like a box of crayons melted on it) gets really good reviews, and it seems as though the board is getting better with each release of a bios update. What do you guys think? I'll be running the same setup as you see below, except I'm probably going to go with either PC2-6400(800) G.Skill 4-4-4-12, or PC2-5300(667) Crucial Anniversary Ed. 3-3-3-12.

- ECS KA3 MVP (1.0A) - bios update to 1.0m (I'll be able to run X-Fire!)
- ASUS M2N-E (only reason I'd buy this board is my history with ASUS, and I've heard good things about it and the Nvidia chipsets)

Thanks in advance for all feedback!

ECS is very nes to OCable MBs, eventhough I've red a good review on that MB and I was in that market I'd still lean twards another brand. Do consider a 590 vs the 570 series if you go that route, the 590 is a better OCable series.

Check for reviews on that ECS MB, the one I recall was favorable so it's still a good consideration.
