Gigabyte in my opinion is the best. MSI I guess is ok well satisfactory anyway but ASUS just sux. However I would have to say that ASUS is excellent compared to ECS. I would buy any brand other than ECS. I can't believe that company manages to even turn a profit.

Asus allways comes out with the newest stuff: it was the first one to come out with SLI and will also be the first one to come out with dual ATI technology.

So that's why my benches are so good.

My favorite right now is gigabyte. The one I got recently is my first one and it set up easy and runs great. It is just as good as my P4C800-E Deluxe if not better and it's way cheaper. I just like gigabyte because they have lots of features and good boards without overcharging like ASUS.

I've never really had any problems with Asus. I've used three of their boards and all have worked great.

But Gigabyte is a close second, IMHO

Asus still is a decent hardware manufacturer if you are one who wants a stable motherboard at stock speeds, however I personally find their hardware rather overpriced now and not a good option for overclocking enthusiats aka us. :P

I have an ASUS and it's very good. I also have an MSI and that's not so good.
