Coming from a Biostar mb user myself, I dont see how it is a "cheapo" motherboard. It held the world record for highest overclock on the previous generation processors. Also the p67 is confirmed to have VERY high overclocking capability. These guys may not be the most famous on the market, but their products are high quality and are up there with the best of them.

i have had much better luck with biostar boards. their stuff has improved greatly over the last few years. asus was always a mixed bag in my past experiences. i have 4 systems out of 5 built on biostars that are around 3 years old and are up and running great still.

ASUS - properly tended, they will last until they are far past obsolete.

Biostar is adequate for budget minded builds for system that are for lightweight use - at least the few Biostar boards that are available in this area - from like, the two computer places that exist within an hour and a half drive from here.

I feel the same way. I haven't had as many boards but I can say this board is still in mint condition after about 2 and a half years.

Does the RAM make a big difference since the Biostar can only go up to about 1800 and the asus can go over 2000? I guess that's probably more of a question for the RAM section though.
