Need Opinions Quickly Please! Asus REIII v. EVGA

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
To try and make this short:

I had an Asus Rampage III board for a year. It broke and I RMA'd it. The new one I recieved then broke 2 months later. When I RMA'd that board I received a new board, but it was already broken: bent pins, broken chips, etc. I then had to RMA that board again and have been waiting for a month to receive a new board. I think I've called asus 20 times in the last month.

Anyways, this new REIII board was supposed to be here monday but Asus didn't have tracking number and I gave up and bought an EVGA 141-GT-E770-A1. Now, I find that Asus just shipped the new REIII board yesterday and it will be at my house tomorrow, while my EVGA board will be today. What should I do?

Return EVGA MB and use the Asus board or use EVGA MB and sell the Asus board?

BTW, for all of you out there contemplating an Asus MB, don't do it. I've been using them for 10 years and they have gone to crap both with their products and customer service.

Return both boards and get a Gigabyte X58 OC?

I would keep the Asus board over the EVGA though.
