Motherboard & Gaming specs

  mynameisrooney 12:15 21 Oct 2006

I've got no idea about motherboards. I've just ordered a pc with a ECS C51GM motherboard. Is this any good?

The specs of the PC are:

Processor: AMD64 Athlon X2 4600+ 1Mb cache AM2

Memory: 2.0GB DDR2 533mhz (2 x 1GB)

Hard Disk Drive: 300GB S-ATA2 3.0Gb/s 16MB buffer (Recommended)

Graphics card: 1 x NVidia GeForce 7900GT PCI-E

Sound Card: Audigy Soundblaster 7.1 24-bit.

Its meant to be a gaming PC but i've suddenly become worried that my motherboard wont be able to handle it.

Does anyone know whether this motherboard/specs will actually give me a good gaming PC?

Seems a good enough board going by a review click here.

Final remarks on last page of review (click here):

- Great Quality
- Error Free Installation
- Run Solid and Fast
- Great Layout
- Small in size

- Not For Overclockers
- Not a whole lot of included options
- Only one PCIE x16

As it has only one PCIE slot, you won't be able to upgrade to a SLI configuration.
