Hi, I was in the process of upgrading my mobo and was wondering what you all would recommend. If you recommend 'other' then I'd appreciate it if you could specify. budget is $300 CDN.

Thanks in advance

What the hell is with all these ASUS boards, you people are so narrow minded. Branch out a bit, look at other companies. DFI makes very nice boards, as does Gigabyte, and Biostar is starting to make a comeback. My vote is for the DFI, though, I have the DK X38 and it hasn't done anything to make me mad at it yet.
