thats what I say always and to every one.
ABit is rock solid as of now, in recent years (when they newely started), they ordered transistors from some cheap manufacturer in order to keep motherboard manufacturing costs low. what happend is that, though they passed initial tests, but after some usage, their transistors started leaking, failing motheboard, this has efected their brand name too much, so later on japanese transistors were ordered. and now they have a reliable name.
as if you consider prices of mobo's (based on identical chipsets), price ranges from £125 - £85 (i'm from UK so using ££ symbol). where Asus is normally most expensive. so you can t say that 125 mobo is as same in quality as that with 85 tag.
so spend some extra, and get good Mobo, whre Asus is on top list in buying.
