Default ECS mobo

Kind of an offbrand but I was wondering about people's opinions on the ECS K8T890A motherboard.

Frys electronic is running a special:

ECS K8T890A motherboard + AMD Athlon 64 3500+ for $199.99

Considering that a 3500+ is going for $201 on NewEgg, that is a great deal.

The mobo doesn't look all that bad. ECS doesn't have a good rep on these forums, but many pre-builts use them.
