Default Motherboard Quality

Hey everyone,

sorry to be beating a dead horse here but I had a question about this mother board I am going to purchase for a build for a friend. It was recommended here, but my friend just wants to make sure that he gets reliable parts. So here is the MOBO that was suggested and I think it is pretty legit. - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

My friend said he is willing to go up on the mobo price if it would mean better quality.
He will not be OCing.

Very good board. Gigabyte is the number 1 motherboard seller right now. That says something. Never had a problem w/ their boards. Easy to oc w/ DFI like results if not better.
