Default Motherboards

I would really like to know if there is any reason to upgrade to an Asus motherboard instead of a eVGA? Cause it seems as if everyone has one......

if your eVGA is serving you fine..then no need to change it.

There is really no need if your motherboard is treating you just fine and dandy. If not, look into it.

Asus's are pretty good, but don't fix something if it isn't broken.

Ohh, I see. In that case I would go with an Asus over the eVGA. But it wouldn't really be an "upgrade" if you were building this and never had an eVGA mobo. Or are you getting that eVGA card what comes with the mobo? In that case I'd stick with the eVGA one purely because its free.

Then you can tell people "I got this motherboard for FREE!!"
