I've always had good luck with ASUS... I've got one now and have had no problems with it... BTW your link doens't work, but I found the one you were looking at. Oh, and 1/2 the reviews you read on various things in Newegg usually are operator errors... (Not all of them mind you) so I would take the reviews with a "grain of salt" so to speak.

I've always had bad luck with ASUS and AMD together. Get a DFI lanparty UT ultra D or the MSI K8N Neo-F.

I was thinking of going with the k8n but i heard that it has many problems of it's own and that MSI is crappy.

On the contrary, the MSI is kick *** board, and it's fairly inexpensive.
