Default Motherboard question

Newegg.com - Foxconn P45A-S LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Is there anything wrong with that one? I am comparing that to the ASUS P5Q PRO and the only difference is the memory standard and memory capacity. Is Foxconn a bad company?

Here is the other: Newegg.com - ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Foxconn is pretty good, they are more known with AMD Boards however.

Thats a tough call. You can't go wrong with either one honestly

ehhh.....I've always used ABIT and ASUS and never had a problem. My brother got a Gigabyte DS3L and it doesn't work. I like the ASUS BIOS better than the Gigabyte one also.

Anyways, the deal is 9800GTX, ASUS M2N-SLI, and AMD 6000+ are out......and probably the ASUS P5Q, Q6600, and 4850 are in. And it is gonna cost me about $90 altogether.
