On one side, the ASUS M2R32-MVP and on the other, the ECS KA3 MVP.  Both use the same chipset, and the basic performance is essentially the same.  HotHardware takes on the challenge of determining which board’s feature set will decide victory.
‘Looking at the two boards for overall value, the first place to start is price. Using various price search engines, we found the ASUS M2R32-MVP being offered for anywhere from $144 – 159. The ECS KA3 MVP Extreme weighs in a bit lower, ranging from $135 – 145. Taking this into account, unless overclocking is a serious concern, the ECS KA3 MVP Extreme has a lot more to offer at a slightly lower price point. With far more storage options, plenty of data cabling and expansion components, the ECS KA3 Extreme strikes a solid balance between features, performance and price. Conversely, if overclocking is a major factor, the ASUS M2R32-MVP is a great fit, but some might feel its overall retail experience is a bit lackluster for the price.’
