It's just about time for school, and everyone is looking to upgrade their current computer or to build an inexpensive computer that will get the requested tasks done. Maybe you just need another computer for the kids or grandparents, but you don't want to break the bank getting one. At today's prices, you can build yourself a decent machine without spending more than five hundred dollars. All you'll need is a motherboard, processor, memory, hard drive, CD drive, power supply, and a case. You don't necessarily need a video card if you have onboard graphics on the motherboard. The ECS G33T-M2 motherboard is what we'll be looking at today and it has onboard video, which will save you at least one hundred dollars since you don't have to purchase a graphics card. Can this motherboard give you the performance you need while keeping your wallet full? Remember, this is not going to be used in your main rig or gaming computer, but rather in a computer that you can build with components lying around the house. Join us as we examine this ECS G33T-M2 motherboard.
