I'm looking at using an ECS A790GXM-A motherboard to go with an AMD 920 CPU.
Are there any known problems with the A790GXM-A motherboard?

After looking at reviews of the board the only thing that I can see as a small "issue" is that just update your bios right away and you should be fine. The update allows the board to work with the AM3 chips along with the 920/940 CPU.

With that said its not a bad board for the price.

Not a bad board, but no firewire, no eSATA ports, performance is on the low-end... decent workstation or Media server board.
Go here for a pretty good review: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/a790gxma/

My opinion, any ECS board....not my first choice even for a budget build.
