how about some links that work.

Anyway, I like ASUS and MSI - Never had any trouble with either board.

Seems like a lot of people like the DFI boards too.

Can't go wrong with MSI or DFI. A lot of people like the DFI because of overclocking capabilites, if i'm not mistaken.

The Asus and MSI boards are pretty equal, save the M2N32, which sports a nForce 590 chipset. Based on my own preference, I would go with the MSI. Really just up to you.

Many people are having trouble with MSI AM2 boards. They should have it fixed with a couple revisions.
