I'm using that same motherboard for my frontend! I'm currently
replacing my video card with a 6200 (I have two in the mail, hopefully
one will do 1080p without tearing like my current FX5300 does...). I
LOVE that motherboard. Its my 5th ECS board, I'm sort of a ECS groupie
one could say, they've done me very well over the years.
