Gary Key from AnandTech takes a look at the EVGA 650i Ultra motherboard:
As you go up the price ladder there are some very good 945P boards from the likes of EPoX and Gigabyte, followed by the budget P965 boards from ECS, MSI, Foxconn, and Biostar. These boards usually offer solid performance and a decent set of features for prices in the $75 to $105 range. Once again, nothing in this sector is designed to offer mid-range performance capabilities at a price under $100. Well, this all changes with the eerily silent release of the NVIDIA 650i Ultra today. The EVGA 650i Ultra board we are reviewing today will initially be offered at $99 but prices should drop as supply and competition become widespread. What is different about this chipset and does it really offer an attractive alternative to the Intel chipsets in the $100 market? Let's find out in today's review of the EVGA 650i Ultra motherboard.
You can check out his review over here. He concludes this board is a nice NVIDIA-based budget solution for the Intel platform. He says the performance and overclocking aspects are awesome for a motherboard that costs only $99, but there's obviously still much room for improvement.
