    ASUS or MSI

    dont go ECS unless you want a door stopper, or maybee a candle holder / plate to eat off of.. because they dont do much else

    Its not that they are that bad...they just dont do any of the fun stuff that most of us enjoy...they tend to be just your plain old vanilla m/b with no bells or whistles and they are made with cheap parts (hence the price).

    btw, of the choices listed i'd go with the MSI

    just believe me on this one.

    Search some reviews onthe k7s5a pro
    if youve never heard the company before ( like amptron.. wtf! )

    then the board usually isnt good... usually choose producers like
    ASUS, MSI, EPOX, ABIT, CHAINTECH or others
