Default 2 board 1 winner

well, as some of you may know from the hardware trouble shooting section

I get these weird "garbage" in the post screen in my current board

so I am trying to get a new board, want some opinions, between the 2 below
GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

about same price after MIR
was suppose to grab a P5Q deluxe but seller backed out for no apparent reason

case wise- I almost ordered the PC-K7B last night..... until I caught a whiff of the Antec P183

Personally, I'd go with the ASUS. We've dealt with that series of board plenty of times with no complaint. Gigabyte is still a good brand, but I've had better luck with ASUS.

i have had nothing but success with asus motherboards.
that stinks about the deluxe...i have had better OC results with it over the pro i had.
