Default Best mobo manu.?

I would like to know the best mobo manufacturers.

Currently, im looking at a MSI K8N NEO4-F S939/NF4/RAID/GLAN/AUD/PCI-X. This is because i need PCI Express component. Wait, the "PCI-X" in the title is PCI Express right?

Anyways, what are the best manufacturers of Mobo's? Is it ASUS, MSI, ABIT, ect?

The answer is DFI, some people will argue this to the death but DFI is the only manafacturer you can truly call "enthusiast compliant".

The Neo4 is PCI-E, PCI-X is often another (incorrent) abbrievation used for PCI-E, but it is different (64 bit variation of PCI slot for servers).

So wait. Is that motherboard i picked out in the first post a PCI-Express or not, even though it says "PCI-X"? And secondly, is it a good mobo? I dont want the best, i just want a good one that will suffice.
