ECS PN2-SLI2+ (V1.0) nForce 680i SLI Motherboard
March 21, 2007

If a processor is considered the heart of a computer, then a motherboard must represent the veins and arteries. In either case you want a strong heart and free-flowing arteries for a healthy life. The same can be said for a computer where your system is only as good as the weakest link. After all, the features and specifications of a motherboard can greatly affect what video cards, processors, and memory your system is capable of running. Today we will be reviewing a motherboard manufactured by ECS Elitegroup, a company that has been in the business since 1987. The particular model we will be reviewing today is being marketed as a motherboard for the computing enthusiast, the ECS PN2-SLI2+ (V1.0) nForce 680i SLI Motherboard.


As with all of our reviews here at Bigbruin.com, lets begin by listing the features and specifications of the ECS PN2-SLI2+ (V1.0) nForce 680i SLI Motherboard.
