From what I gather from researching online its a bargain board with lots of features. Meaning its inexpensive and not well made with top end components to keep the cost down, it should perform well in a moderate system without overclocking. I have no personal experience with this manufacture so your experience with this product could vary greatly from what I have learned. I do know that if they're on par with another bargain board manufacture ECS they're manufacturing process varies greatly you may get a great board that outlast the usefullness of the computer while another board may not work at all out of the box.

Thanks Cyber, I've owned 2 ECS boards, both are still kickin, ASRock has been around longer than ECS. I hear the boards are solid. Yes, It's a middle of the road edition, no usb 3.0 or I7 ready or stuff like that, but it will do HDMI . And is AMD3 ready. Just ddr2 not ddr3. Alan

I built this project in less than 3 hours, AMD 4200 + 2.2Ghz cpu, 4 gigs of Corsair 800 Mhz ram, 700watt Raidmax Aurora2 ps, case is the new CM690 Cooler Master. It's a little loud, not loud, just not whisper quiet. 64 bit Vista Ultimate installed with no problems. I quit installing 32 bit os as the 64 is taking over. I still use 32 bit in my rig, see signature, I'll overclock the 4200+ to 2.6Ghz today,Alan

Yep, and it oc to 2.64 stock heat sink and fan. Sneaky it's a little loud for my taste, can you recommend an after market "Quiet cooler"? Alan oh, ram is now 533Mhz from 400Mhz, the easy over colck did the work for me.
