Default Comments on Motherboard

I'm looking for feedback on the following motherboard:

http://www.foxconnchannel.com/produc...Name=915G7MC-S

Would like to know if you think it is good, bad, and reasons why. I'd like to avoid "Foxconn sucks!" unless you can provide reasons why. I'm not looking to overclock, just something to run a PCI-E graphics card that is compatible with my system (which this MoBo is).

Look above.

I've seen the "FOXCONN IS THE WORST EVAR" threads, but no one, ever, has provided a reason why. Please elaborate.

Maybe you could have been a little more informative than that?

*Edit:

MSI, Gigabyte, Asus and Abit are your best bets for a sturdy, safe and reliable motherboard.

I'll most likely just settle for an Intel MoBo. Should be well enough, I'd hope.

I'd love to use ASUS, Abit, Gigabyte, or MSI, but there aren't any on newegg with Micro ATX, 1 PCI-E slot, support for Prescott P4, and Socket T (LGA 775). There's one ASUS that has been sold out for quite sometime.

So, I'll most likely be going with Intel.
