maplin are over priced severely, plus ECS motherboards are total rubbish. £142.58 delivered with gainward 8400gs 512mb GDDR2, same processor, 2gb corsair ram and a Asus AM2+ motherboard with hybrid sli.

That one is not GS but GT graphic card and motherboard is not Asus. Asus makes cheap, low-quality equipment.

ECS is not wonderfull but much better than Asus. Asus was good brand about 10 years ago.

Categorically disagree.

Asus make some good motherboards.

Some of their stuff is poor, but would always recommend a mobo.

Besides, as above poster said, compared to ECS?!??

Cold deal TBH when compared.

Asus are the best at motherboards. ECS are the worse, the 8400gs is a low end graphics card, ueless at gaming you wont notice the difference in day to day use. Low end cards like these are good as they have hdmi ports, good for connecting up to tv and watching blu ray. i was not able to find a 8400gt on aria thats why i chose a gainward 8400gs 512mb GDDR2 with hdmi. So basically the components on Aria are £27.41 cheaper, and you get better brands.

I second that motion. Asus are on of the best reputed motherboard manufacturers out there, same can't be said of ECS. **** poor deal, would never buy computer components from Maplin, they are often up to 100% more expensive than the exact same products from Ebuyer, Scan or Aria...

COLD with a capital C

Out where? Asus is cheap and that's why is popular. It may be reputed brand for you and your friends but not for someone who wants a decent item. Asus was one of the best brands few years ago but found itself in a position where couldn't compete with cheaper companies so lowered its standards and prices. A lot of people buy it as they still think it's as good as it used to be - but unfortunately it isn't.

thanks.

End o the day ECS hjust manufacture cheap motherboards, if you want a good motherboard go for asus, msi, foxconn, gigabyte etc.
Asusek has two brand names, asrock and Asus. Asrock targets the budget end of the market whie asus target the premium end, at this rate this deal will go below -100.

Well that just shows that all your knowlegde comes from internet and glossy computer magazines. I, on the other hand have some practical experience as used to custom build PC and can tell that Asus motherboards had around 15% faulties within 12 months of purchase which is quite rubbish and that's why I wouldn't reccommend it to anyone. I've used ECS only few times but never had any returns. Most of the motherboards I've been using were Abit, Gigabyte and MSI and those had really low (around 5% total) fault percentage within first 12 months (that was the company's warranty period). And to be honest the only brand with no returns from customer was Abit - at least when I worked there. I've finished that job obout 2 years ago and don't think that Asus suddenly started making great motherboards.
