It's usually the first company you have a good experience with is the favorite...unless you turn to hate them because of a bad experience.

Anyway, I like Asus.

My first mobo was a MSI, loved it, 2nd one was also a MSI. I am now switching to Gigabyte DS3 now though, seeing they have a famous reputation for support and reliability.

I'd stick with the DS3.


I semi own one, and it's a wonderful board to work with.


But if I had to pick, DFI infinity would be my choice.
