ECS H55H-M Motherboard Review

ECS is known for having less expensive products than their competition and the ECS H55H-M motherboard is a perfect example of using a mainstream chipset without all of the bells and whistles of the competition to deliver a motherboard that costs less than $75. The ability of the H55 chipset to use the Clarksdale CPU for integrated graphics means that you can have a real system at a very low cost of ownership as you only need to drop the CPU into the Socket, add memory, a HDD and an optical drive and you have the makings of a nice Home Theater PC.. If you want to install a video card you can like the HD 5870 or even a 5970 to give great gaming experience with this motherboard. Overall for 73 bucks this is a good motherboard despite its shortcomings on high end features being its only drawback. By Motherboards.org
