Default Are there any real good motherboards out there?

I have been looking at newegg for motherboards as I am thinking about building another computer. Are there any good ones out there? According to the ratings there are too many bad eggsI am not a gamer but I need a good motherboard because I work it hard with video editing. I like a well built board but there seems to be so many negatives toward them unless you want to pay 300 for one. Anyone care to comment on this.

Don't trust newegg reviews. Most of the people don't know what they are talking about. What is your budget?

I will go to $200. Like I said I am not a gamer. I just use it hard for video editing.

Thanks. I think that looks good but I still will keep looking for a while.

Sounds more like a little stock voltage overclock. I would go with the gigabyte board, plus it is P45.
