In case you missed it while preparing for the weekend Steve’s review of the solid ECS A790GXM-AD3 went up on Friday.  For a hair over $100 you can pick up a board with support for AM3 chips and DDR3 up to 1333MHz, HD audio, a pair of PCIe2.0 16x slots and quite a few SATA channels.  Perhaps one of the most interesting features is the new AMD OverDrive utility, which allowed him to soar past his old record on the ASUS M3A78-T, without any voltage tweaking.  Definitely worth a look!

“The ECS A790GXM-AD3 is a great entry-level, budget-minded AM3 motherboard that gives end users more than enough features to quench their thirst for higher performance, easy of use, and stability. The BIOS was absolutely fantastic in terms of usability and also had plenty of advanced features for overclocking. Overall, I didn’t see too many flaws with this board. It was rock solid during our benchmarks and was a decent overclocker.”
