i have an experience in this 2 manufacturers and im really impressed by the performance of GIGABYTE boards very reliable, a true price/performance winner unlike my old M2N32, thru OCing it ends the life of my 5600+ and a couple of blown caps in the board (so sad).
so based on my experience... i agree that asus uses a non-jap capacitors.

Asus and Gigabyte are both good brands. But as I know of, Asus has a much better RMA department than Gigabyte. I have both, both are great. MSI, though I would not recommend. I had a MSI board with a Socket 478 and I had a P4 in it. After two days the board died, so I RMAed, they sent me my exact board back and said it was new and refused to send another new one. After that, I refuse to even touch MSI stuff.

newer p45 asus series looks promising, and nice too. Gigabyte stuck with old p35 and x38 design...

I didn't really have a problem when I RMA'd my DS3L even when it was my fault for screwing the BIOS up.

For the low end boards you can't go past Gigabyte but for high end I'd stick to ASUS or even more DFI.
