Default what mobo brands are good...

... and which ones should i stay away from...

i recently purchaced a mobo and cpu from newegg... but when i finally recieved it... the cpu was DOA... so i consulted some friends and they told me to send back the entire thing just incase it was the mobo too... so i did...

got an email the other day from newegg saying that the parts were out of stock and they were gonna give me a full refund instead...

so now i guess im shopping for another new mobo but im unsure which brands are good and are gonna be reliable and which ones are gonna give me nothing but problems... thanks in advance

Welcome to Tech-Forums!

Abit is the absolute best motherboard manufacturer (imo).

ASUS's tech support are not what they use to be, the mobo's themselves are still wonderful. ASUS roxors mah soxors.

ASUS good, ton's of features, great quality. But if you don't know what you are doing and need the tech support, then I guess you should leave ASUS out.
