    Phoronix: ECS GF8200A Black & ASRock K10N78FullHD-hSLI

    Back in April we had looked at the ECS A780GM-A, which was a nice low-cost motherboard and had worked well under Linux with the newer desktop distributions. This motherboard had integrated Radeon HD 3200 graphics, which we had found to perform well and equivalent to a Radeon HD 2400PRO discrete graphics card. However, for those interested in NVIDIA graphics, there is the GeForce 8200 IGP that also performs well on Linux. If you are interested in the GeForce 8200 chipset, today we are looking at two of the cost-effective motherboards deploying this chipset: the ECS GF8200A Black and ASRock K10N78FullHD-hSLI.

    At least the ECS boards got nice Ubuntu colors
    But I would go for an intel (G45) or AMD (780G) chipset instead of nvidia.

      I don't mean to bump up this thread but I have got to ask how the ECS GF8200A board works with modern Ubuntu distros now. I'm hoping to try Jaunty Jackelope and see how it works. Anyone have experience on it?

        I am very much noob, but I can say I have a Biostar TF8200 that seems to work fine in all ways with Mint Gloria 32 bit. Hope that helps in at least a small way.
