The Verdict:
ECS A785GM-M is a great board if you want an HTPC setup

Elitegroup Computer Systems have been in the computer business since 1987. ECS became the first motherboard manufacturer based in Taiwan to be listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange.

The latest in the Black Series range of motherboards is the A785GM-M. It is based on the AMD 785G chipset with 140W Phenom II processor (Socket AM3) support. The A785GM-M integrates the ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics IGP, which includes AMD Hybrid Crossfire technology and DirectX 10.1 capabilities.

With HDMI output and 7.1 channel audio output, we find out if this micro-ATX board could be an excellent board to build your HTPC.
