you'll always have an argument about the best manufacturer of any computer component, lol.

But I say if you a board backed by overall quality and customer support as well as regular updates, Asus. But if you know what you are doing, and like to set every setting yourself, get a DFI...But if you have no idea what you are doing and don't ever want to overclock, get an Intel board, because they are always stable...and they last really long

lol EVGA has like 2 good motherboards.

I like DFI myself. My second choice is MSI. I've owned Asus boards in the past, and even though I liked most of them, you have to spend a lot to get a good one. Cheap asus boards are always crap.

what are you smoking? jk jk...

but I've owned asus, DFI, gigabyte, PCchips, ECS and maybe one Epox, but i dion't rember it. the Asus boards were probably the best as far as build quality however I haven't hearda asingle good thing except from you about thier tech support dept. ECS's tech support is worthless aswell. My DFI and gigabyte boards have been the best i've ever owned... Also I hate Asus's site, it's slow and unorganized... DFI's is a bit unorganzed but fast, and Gigabyte's is pwnsome...

Gonna have to +1 Asus myself, have built 20 machines on Asus boards and they were all good.
But I'm not a blind fanboy, I have to give recognition to Gigabyte and DFI. They make some quality products.
