So what do you guys think?

I need to get a board ASAP!

Yes you have a pd but in the future if you wanna upgrade you will need to upgrade the motherboard and cpu where if you pickup a board now that supports newer cpus you will be set for later.

Id shell out the extra 25$ and get the GA 965P S3 its an open box deal. But it will support plenty of cpu upgrades all the way to a 65nm Quad. Plus its a great overclocker, and this is overclock.net :-)

That ECS board isnt "bad" but I would never buy another ECS or recommend one...

I agree with 10acjed, you'd be better off in the long run investing a bit more money to get a decent board unless you plan on keeping your rig close to stock speeds. If you have some time ebay or the sale section of this forum are great places to pick up a board on a budget.

Looking at your sig rig, you'll probably want to upgrade sometime within the next couple of years, and that ECS board is already on the tail end of the supported tech.

Ohhh... if you are going to OC, i would be careful about the NB. The heatsink looks flaky. A cheap replacement would benefit you but other than that heat issue you should be fine with it. I wouldn't expect anything amazing with it, but I would expect it to be just fine
