The ECS X58B-A Black Series motherboard is available online for a price of only $260. This compares favorably in the price department to other X58 motherboards which have a heftier premium. As we move into 2009 we will likely see the prices of these motherboards reach a more mainstream level allowing more people to use them. ECS has been trying to make their way back into the enthusiasts mindset for the last few years and have succeeded wonderfully with the ECS X58B-A Black Series motherboard as it has all of the features of the competition with the noticeable exception of supporting three way or more SLI or Crossfire as the board only has two PCI Express x16 slots limiting you to two-way SLI or Crossfire. Not a big difference considering all the other great features of his board. I give A Hot Product Award as it does excel in a few key areas to the enthusiast user.
