Default Motherboard Recommendation for you guys

When building a computer I would recommend the Machspeed brand motherboards. As they have a lifetime warranty. Which is nice seeing as the warranty covers bad caps, which I see everyday.
Just some Info for you guys...

Right now, I'm using the Abit AV8 motherboard. I've had no problems whatsoever with it and it's highly recommended for an Athlon 64 (non-sli) setup.
