Overall rating 8/10

ECS attempts to take on the big boys with an attractively priced board that gives SLI hungry Intel users a reason to drool. At first glance, the C19-A SLI sports some really spartan features, but once you take this nForce4 SLI XE powered motherboard on a test run, you won't be looking back.
