Suppose it would depend on what options you want. I've also heard the Abit is real good. MSI is also a good stable brand. I've personally never had troubles with it and I've known atleast 2 people with the MSI Neo2-Platinum that have had no problems/complaints with it and I'm building a computer for a guy that's going to be using the MSI board. About all I can suggest Personally I HATE ASUS though, you'll find they have terrible technical support and I just don't think their quality is what it once was.

Abit has recently released the AX8 with the K8T890 North Bridge (PCI-E).

The K8T890 PRO will soon be released (which supports SLI).

if ur lookin for something with agp and not one of the newer ones coming out with pci-e then i suggest u look at those.. theyre in order of my most favorite and recomended to least recomended (the ones higher up are the most recomended and as u get lower and lower i recomend them less and less... well u get the picture ) lol... and i didnt even include asus in there cuz i HATE them as well... so asus isnt even comparable lol.. good luck

PS. just as a side note i was wondering when there will actually be a card out that fully utilizes pci-e? i know that even the newest x800 pros pci-e versions dont full utilize the interface.. ive heard that the 6800 GPUs are coming out in pci-e but i was just curious will they fully utilize the capabilities of the pci-e interface?

The next line of cards will be released in early 2005. They will take full advantage of PCI-E's features, but not speed.

It will be a while until video cards can operate that fast.

The price will be equivalent to high-end AGP based cards.

depends because they'd probably have various PCI-E versions of the cards just like in AGP, meaning they got the 128mb , the GT, and the Ultra, they'll probably have the same regarding PCI-E although I'm not saying this is dead set in stone fact. More than likely the PCI-E will be atleast $50 more expensive than the AGP equivelants.
