I like gigabyte. But I like Asus better. No actual reason. From what I noticed they are basically the same Mobo, different colors/name brands but so what? Flip a coin.

I know what from experience Gigabyte are very reliable! However this is for an AMD not an intel, but I would pressume both have the same quality.
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 *Cooled with Thermaltake Mini-Typhoon* || Intel Quad Core Q6600
Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
2gb Kingston 667 DDR2 RAM || 4gb Kingston 667Mhz DDR2 RAM
Gigabyte 512mb 8800GTS (683/2150)
250gb Seagate HDD (ATA133) 7200rpm/16mb cache || 750gb SATA2 Seagate HDD
ASUS MW221U 22" Widescreen 2ms.
Logitech Z-5500D 5.1 Speakers
