Hi
this is my first post on bleeping, so go easy on me. anyway i am planning on building a computer on a tight budget for light gaming. i have two questions...
one: is this a good motherboard?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813135083
and two: is this a cool case?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811192061

please give me some feedback, im looking to stay as low as possible price wise, and im not doing anything crazy.
i thought that if i get that motherboard i can expand a lot later, with up to 32 gigs of memory supported and whatnot.
thanks in advance!!! :thumbsup:

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

The features of the motherboard seem nice. The only thing is ECS usually makes cheap motherboards, hence the price. I've heard many people complain about how they don't work properly, or are dead on arrival. If you're really looking for a cheap motherboard, you can try it out if you want though. Newegg has a very good return policy :thumbsup: . I wouldn't be so impressed with 32gb of ram total anyway. I've only seen a couple of sticks of ram that are 4gb, and by the time they start making 8gb sticks, they'll probably only be for DDR3 ram. If you can find a good board that supports 16gb of ram, go for it.

The case seems pretty cool too, especially for the price.
