Each and ever company is not really better or worse than the other overall (Unless its some sketchy one no one has ever heard of). The quality is usually more about the type of board + what chipset it is using.

That being said, I would recommend DFI, ASUS, and Gigabyte

It depends on what you are looking for and who you ask.

Efficiency is a completely different issue, almost a non-issue in the world of motherboards though.

From past experience i would highly recommend both Gigabyte and DFI motherboards, as the three boards i have from them havent had a single hitch since the day i bought them. (1 754, 1 939, and 1 AM2+)
I had a horrible experience with Asus, and will be more hesitant to buy from them in the future while other members have had great experience.

Its mostly personal preference, but if anything stay away from Jetway, ECS, and ASrock.

I'll be honest, I've heard bad stories on ASUS's support, but from my experience, I've never had to go through anything like that and my board works just like it should!

That being said, also out of experience, Gigabyte is another company I'd trust. I've built 5 systems that used the same motherboard (DS3L) and they are still working up to this day with no problems.

Hope this helped!

MSI is pretty nifty too. Gigabyte is a big favourite around here. Asrock is a cheap mobo; if you are paying more than 50$ for a mobo, don't go asrock, type thing. They're the 'budget board', normally just temporary.

What else can I say?Everything else was stated xD

That was fast. Thank you very much for the quick replies. I am looking for an AMD board to be exact. I was just wondering what my best option was. All of you gave me the same answers, they help me out quite a bit. I'm looking at some ASUS boards out right now.

thank you all
