Default Motherboard quality?

Has anyone experienced problems with Intel Motherboard?
Would it be more wise to purchase an ASUS Motherboard? What is your opinion?

If you want to overclock, don't get the Intel board. Asus is a very good brand, what model are you looking at?

Intel motherboards im sure are very robust motherboards but they really are not anything special. I have had 2 Asus motherboard and ive had no probs with them. I have had problems with Gigabyte motherboards before though. But im sure there are a lot of good motherboards out there so post some details with what system you are upgrading and we will reccomend something for you.
Core 2 Duo E6400, DFI Infinity 975X/G, 2x 512mb DDR2 667mhz, Albatron 7900gt, WD 200gb SATA, Samsung DVD-RW, Silverstone ST-50EF 500w PSU.
