eTeknix gives this motherboard a Silver Award for its decent performance with a low price tag to match.
"As of late, hardware has become less expensive and more efficient and so it should with more competition than ever, more brands want to be top of the food chain as it were. There are some users including the gamers and enthusiasts with cash burning a hole in their pockets that will lead them to a high-end board such as the ASUS Crosshair collection or Gigabyte UD7 motherboards but the majority of users won't believe in paying these top prices for features they will most likely not use.
Thankfully motherboard manufacturer's don't just focus on the high-end market, but also on the mainstream market as well. This doesn't mean that the components are of any lesser quality, but instead it supplies the user with everything they need, and nothing that they don't.
Well the folks over at Elite Computer Systems have decided to ship us one of their motherboards. The ECS A785GM-M Socket AM3 motherboard. While most of you may remark that this board is kind of old and outdated by the newest AMD 8xx series boards, it still has something to give for the budget user."
