Doesn't have PCIe unless you just need a normal PCI slot for PCIe (useful, eh?).

Better pony up some cash to buy stuff at compUSA. They rip you off!
This board is way better and will give you better performance and to top it off!! it is cheaper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Or if you want to spend the 150 on a motherboard, spend it on this one.

DO NOT BUY FROM CompUSA

It depends, they are both really good. The ECS board has the built in heatsink and fan already on the northbridge chipset. And the Asus has got a really good size heatsink already on it. It really comes down to how much you want to spend. But ASUS is more of a well known brand.
