ECS PT800CE-A: Is this MB worth keeping
I'm building a new computer for my friend who doesn't want to spend a lot of money. Initially, I was going to get him a P4 3.0E CPU with an ASUS P4P800, but I got a great deal on the same CPU bundled with the ECS PT800CE-A mobo for $160. I was going to just keep the mobo for a second room system, but then I thought if the MB is ok, I'd just use it in his system.
I've heard that ECS boards aren't too good, but was hoping that someone had a good experience with this one? Is this chipset any good? It's the VIA PT800CE & 8237.
He's not really into gaming, he just wants an updated machine that he can do video editing from his new digital camcorder and older analog tapes and such.
