This is a old thread, but I disagree. My build based on a ECS K7KT266A, AMD Duron 1 ghz & 266 mhz DDR1 was 1 of my 1st "modern era" builds that was not only cheap (basicaly whole box for $500), but when I slapped in a 64 meg Sapphire Radeon 9000 into it gave me a very high preforming setup vs even alot of my buds intel builds for quite some time.

Anyways, those of us whom are knowledgable enough will tell you that when your looking for a OEM-esque type of board that will be cheap, do what you need it to do with average - slightly above average preformance ECS boards will do the job nicely. In fact even been a few instances over the years a couple have been top or near top preformers.
