Default AMD64: Which Would You Choose... Gigabyte XP -or- Asus SE Deluxe?

Which is the better (regardless of price)? I'm thinking the Gigabyte (i hear they are the only mobo to support 1600 Mhz FSB)?

thx in advance!

I geting ready to build a AMD64 system and i am planing to use the ASUS. From what i have read it is a little more Reliable but I think the high end GIGABYTE comes with a few more bells a whistles. I think that if you have ever worked with one of these brands before then go with what you know. check out the reviews people have left at

Hope i was of some help

I'm in the same situation, in a few months I'm going to build a 64 bit system. I'm pretty sure as of now I'm going with the gigabyte motherboard because it seems to have a few more features and it also has the nVidia chipset, which I've heard is supposed to be better than the VIA, but I guess that's just a matter of opinion.
