Default intel vs. everybody else

I have noticed that most poeple use brand boards (ex. asus, abit etc.) when working on a build. Is there some advantage to these brands than just building with the straight intel boards. After all, aren't they using the same chipsets. Let me put it like this. I am considering a build but I am trying to decide whether to go with the intel d955xbk or the asus p5wd2 premiun. Any suggestions and reasons for the suggestion . Thanks for any advice.

How about going with AMD? :classic:

They don't make their own motherboards .

I would go with AMD but I don't consider myself an Extreme Gamer but a power user and I have seen testimony after testimony of how the intel are better (well rounded) for multitasking and certain aps for business.

Even Intel Dual Core Pentium-Ds are no match for AMD's X2s.

And ofcourse, you know that clock speed means nothing when comparing AMD and Intel.
