The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.

With the success of the GeForce 8200 chipset from Nvidia, we are seeing more and more motherboards coming out based on this technology designed for mainstream computer users and system builders. The GeForce 8200 chipset takes older, proven technology...
Good Strong integrated graphics, Native DDR2 1066MHz support, 8channel HD audio, Very inexpensive, Supports Hybrid SLI, Ran a CPU with 125w TDP with no problems, Onboard Power and Reset buttons, Supports HD formats 720p, 1080p and 1080i with onboard video...
Bad No digital audio ports, No DVI connection or adapter, Poor overclocking headroom with 125w TDP CPU...
Bottom line What can I say? This board is a beast! The ECS GF8200A took everything I threw at it and asked for more. It even accepted a processor with a maximum 125w TDP, when the board states that it officially only supports processors with a maximum 95w TDP. Th...

ECS brings us yet another Black Edition board, the GF8200. This time a Hybrid function board for the AMD AM2+ socket CPU’s. The board comes with a DirectX 10 capable integrated graphics processor with 512mb of shared memory and HDMI output.Specificatio...
Bottom line A mid-range motherboard with reasonable performance on some games is what the GF8200A is all about. It is a great daily use home or office board. Even though this is a Black Edition motherboard, its lack of overclocking options in BIOS makes it more of...

Erst vor wenigen Wochen haben wir mit dem A780GM-A eine Hauptplatine aus dem Hause ECS vorgestellt. Heute möchten wir erneut ein Mainboard dieses Herstellers präsentieren, wobei unsere Erfahrungen unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten.Das ECS GF8200A ba...
Bottom line Beim Test des ECS GF8200A lagen Licht und Schatten nah beieinander. Versinnbildlicht wird dies durch den Onboard-Sound, welcher durchweg gute Werte bei der Signalqualität ablieferte - wenn er denn überhaupt einmal funktionierte. Treiberprobleme und ei...

Aunque una de las aficiones de las grandes compañías sea lanzarse pullas continuas, eso no quiere decir que no podamos encontrar mezclas de sus productos. Por eso, aunque en un mundo ideal Intel dejaría sus chipsets en placas para procesadores AMD y vi...
Good Rendimiento correcto, Buen precio, Posibilidad de GeForce Booster...
Bad No es la opción para usuarios exigentes...
Bottom line Las pruebas realizadas dejan bastante claro que el rendimiento convencional de la placa no difiere prácticamente del obtenido en otras con chipsets de la competencia, como es el AMD 780G. Si usamos la gráfica integrada, la 8200 de Nvidia es peor que la...
2011-11-07 13:32:21
Asi como ECS ha mostrato excelentes modelos de motherboards para procesadores AMD basados en chipsets del mismo origen, ahora nos presenta lo que puede lograr de la mano de chipsets NVIDIA.ECS (EliteGroup Computer Systems) una empresa fundada en el a...

Una placa madre económica con ADN entusiasta y video integrado, de la mano de NVIDIA. Todo esto para hacer funcionar procesadores AMD actuales y pasados. Si lo tuyo es la eficiencia energética, este es el análisis que esperabas.En una temporada en la q...
Bottom line ECS nos entrega una placa madre con aires de grandeza a un precio razonable y las pruebas fueron muestra de ello en la cual se llevo la victoria en varias de las contiendas, dejando de lado las de potencia grafica, pero esto no es problema de la placa...

nVidia designed its GeForce 8200 (GF8200) core-logic chipset to compete head-on with AMD’s excellent 780G in the value market. The GF8200 therefore supports AM2+ processors and DDR2 memory and, like the 780G, is a single-chip-based chipset rather than...
Good Decent board layout, plenty of onboard features, very attractively priced, 125-watt CPUs compatible, HD decoding.
Bad 4-pin 12V connector is placed badly.
Bottom line The GF8200A Black is an excellent value board that is also perfect for use in a HTPC thanks to its long list of integrated features...

With the economy in the mess that it is in, it is hard for people to justify spending huge dollars on upgrades right now. You have some people that still seem to have some "stupid money" and are spending $250+ on a new motherboard every product cyc...
Bottom line ECS may have been targeting the lower end market with this board, but with its price, and the performance it offers, it becomes very attractive to anyone looking to upgrade... especially in tough economic times!...
2011-07-31 02:35:16
The AMD 780G chipset dominates the segment of integrated motherboards for the AMD platform. But as we had expected, GeForce 8200 also found its niche and became a foundation of many motherboards. On the face of things, we are surprised to see so many...
Bottom line On the whole, this motherboard will do for a widely expandable computer, for which ATX form-factor allows. The exception is the declocked integrated graphics core not suitable for games or video applications. This motherboard caters only for the thrif...
2011-07-31 02:35:29
The BIOS might not offer the most exhaustive set of tweaking options, but you do get more than you might expect. Couple the overclocking potential with onboard reset and power buttons, as well as other desirable features for desktop and HTPC usage, and...
Good Board is attractive and well laid out, Onboard power and reset buttons, Runs cool and quiet, Phenom processor support, Plenty of connections: 12 USB 2.0, 6 SATA (including an eSATA port on rear I/O panel), Onboard DirectX 10 capable graphics, Onboard HDMI output for audio and video, NVIDIA Hybrid Power Technology and GeForce Boost Technology, Price...
Bad BIOS could be more enthusiast friendly, Dual channel mode has memory modules installed right next to each other, PCI Express x16 slot release mechanism difficult to operate, DVI connection would be prefered over the 15-pin VGA connection...
Bottom line The ECS GF8200A Black Series GeForce 8200 motherboard wound up surprising me. After reviewing the A780GM-A motherboard I knew that ECS was headed in the right direction with their Black Series, but that only so much can be done while trying to maintai...

Integrated graphics have been widely regarded as a joke among hardware enthusiasts as they are generally underperforming, feature deficient and have drivers that don’t support the latest features in the case of the Intel integrated graphics not even h...
Bottom line For the budget-minded consumer, the ECS GF8200A is a pretty good deal. For $70 USD, the board has the features to build a good gaming PC or a HTPC with the integrated graphics with the caveat that there is no digital audio output and DVI port. The bene...

GF8200A Black Series is an entry-level socket AM2+ motherboard with on-board video from ECS based on GeForce 8200 (MCP78M-A) chipset from nVidia. Since it features an HDMI output, this board is clearly targeted to users willing to build a media center...
2011-07-31 02:35:46
While there are the obvious differences between the ECS GF8200A Black and ASRock K10N78FullHD-hSLI, both motherboards have many similar traits and had performed about the same under Linux. NVIDIAs GeForce 8200 (MCP78S) Chipset backs the GF8200A Black...

It never ceases to amaze me how much fun the more budget oriented products can be. Recently we reviewed ECSes AMD 780G chipset based mainboard, feature-packed for a very small price. It offers just so much fun for the money spent on it. Yet we figure...
Bottom line I have to admit that I seem to grow a soft spot for mainboards like tested today. Face it, for the money you get a very decent set of options and features, the performance is quite interesting as well. It wins and loses a little opposed to the 780G ma...
2011-07-31 02:36:06
Bluetooth 18 Apr 2008 Last week, we took a look at the AMD 780G board ECS A780GM-A. Today, we take a look at another black label series main board, the ECS GF8200A. The GF8200A uses a single chipset, the NVIDIA MCP78S or GF8200A which is the direct...
Good Hybrid SLI upport, eSATA...
Bad no debug led, no DVID, 1394, Chipset is HOT, Driver not ready...
Bottom line Integrated graphics mainboard seems to be the way to go for 2008. Be it hybrid SLI or hybrid CrossFire. In fact, even the full fledge SLI boards like the 750a will also support such a function with its castrated IGP inside. The ECS GF8200A, a full AT...

With inflation (also sometimes called greed) rampant driving prices up on just about everything from food to video games, we can always use some good deals. Its also been a little tough finding the PC components we want without spending too much...
Bottom line Performance is pretty much a dead heat when looking at CPU performance. Each board seemed to do an equally good job of utilizing my lowly AMD X2 5200+ BE. The only major difference between the two platforms in regards to processors is overclocking. Th...

The release of the AMD 780G chipset has become a remarkable event in the IT industry. The speed of its integrated graphic core has proved to be very fast, and the functionality so vast that we had to test four boards to examine the chipset from all the...

Como vimos na avaliação da ECS A780GM-A Black, o popular "vídeo onboard" mudou bastante. Deixou de ser sinônimo de baixo desempenho e placas mãe de baixa qualidade para se tornar até algo bem-vindo e desejável. Sobre tudo para os entusiastas dos HTPCs/...
Bottom line O GeForce 8200 se mostrou interessante, semelhante em muitos aspectos ao AMD780G e totalmente diferente em outros. Oferece bom desempenho e um ótimo conjunto de recursos, como 6 portas SATA com suporte a RAID, uma interessante Rede Gigabit com "First...
2011-11-07 13:32:56
A GF8200A Black Series é uma placa-mãe soquete AM2+ com vídeo on-board da ECS baseada no chipset GeForce 8200 (MCP78M-A) da NVIDIA. Por ter uma saída HDMI, esta placa é claramente voltada para os usuários dispostos a montarem um PC do tipo “media cente...
Bottom line Apesar de a ECS ter uma placa-mãe simples com uma boa qualidade de fabricação nós ficamos desapontados com o desempenho oferecido pelo chipset GeForce 8200 se comparado com o obtido por seu principal concorrente, o AMD 780G.Mas no universo do vídeo on-...
