don't get that ECS board, if you want a cheap board get a refurbed shuttle from newegg, 10x better! Antec is pretty expensive...and I really don't think it's neccessary, but that's just my opinion, others swear by thier antec. AK31A is a sweet board, AK35GT is also. I've heard too many horror/sad stories about these boards either not working or just not performing.
