PCStats checks out the econo line Foxconn WinFast NF4K8AC-8EKRS (NVIDIA nForce4) socket 939 Athlon64 motherboard:
This motherboard is based on the vanilla nForce4 chipset and it seems like the only difference between this and the Ultra version is Serial ATA II (this version supports standard SATA). Other onboard features include a PCI Express x16 and two PCI Express x1 slots, an integrated 7.1 channel audio codec, Gigabit LAN and IEEE 1394a firewire.
…Never let the fact that Foxconn is not a well known motherboard brand (yet) hold you back from taking in what we’ve learned here. The Foxconn Winfast NF4K8AC-8EKRS handled the benchmarks well, and is pretty much able to keep up with the best of the reference boards, except that its price is just $115 CDN ($95 USD)! If you’re looking to build a budget or entry level system, this is certainly a motherboard to keep it in mind.
