Hi, what's your opinion on choosing between the two following motherboards:

ASUS M2V-MX

ECS AMD690GM-M2

I like the ASUS board because it supports 2 IDE and 2 SATA (more versatility), and of course its support for Cool'n'Quiet technology. Apparently the graphics are kinda crappy tho.

On the other hand, the graphics on the ECS board are supposed to be pretty good for onboard. Their site advertises 2 IDE, but Newegg specs&reviewers say 1.

Graphics aren't too important for what I intend to use the computer for (home office-ish), but they are tempting. Not getting a video card, so relying on onboard graphics. I guess it comes down to if the graphics are good enough to sacrifice the Cool'n'Quiet (I don't know how everything weighs against each other >.<").

Once again, thanks so much! :)
