    Yeah ECS has been around a while, more known for their motherboards. Can probably find one a few bucks cheaper from XFX or EVGA

    I have an old ECS board that has been going strong for years. Have not tried their video cards though.

    What do you guys think of Palit cards?
    I see them on the net, but they don't sell them in my local[PDX,OR].
    I'm interested in the "Palit GeForce 8600GT Super+1GB", I can find it for $230!

    Thanks in advance,

    Good review, Palit as a brand seems good, but the extra memory doesnt seem to help it at all.

    ECS = The suck from way back when. They used to make cheap mobos that died all the time, but that was back in 2001~

    My opinion is for you to stick to the bigger brands (I.E Asus, MSI, BFG or even XFX).
    Intel Core 2 Duo Q8300 2.55Ghz (1333mhz)
    Asus P5N-D
    OCZ Platinum 8gb (2x2gb) PC8000 1000mhz 5-5-5-18
    EVGA 460GTX 1gb PCIE 2.0
    Western Digital Black 640gb x 2 Raid 0
    Coolermaster 1000W Modular PSU
    Antec NSK4480B
    Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    HP TC5700 (Thin Client) 1ghz, 512mb 80gb 1x1000mb NIC 1x100mb NIC running PFSense 1.22
    Linksys WRT-150 running DD-WRT V.24 (Access Point)
