DFI all the way. Asus sucks although I hear they are good for Intels still.

Tech support is non existant unless you speak taiwanese.

This isn't even a competition, this is a slaughter. DFI is in a class of it's own

The best AMD boards are made by DFI and the best Intel boards are made by ASUS.
Abit is a close second for both I think.

Asus isn't horrible... just don't expect the performance you get from a DFI.

I've heard good things about Asus sending you new boards if the one you get breaks.
Iraq... whee.

DFI can just overclock more. That's the main reason. If you're not planning on overclocking, asus is fine.
