Intel motherboards do NOT suck. They are the most reliable motherboards on the market. How could they make bad chipsets, yet bad motherboards??? Their motherboards are specifically designed for their processors. Go to any computer EStore, and you will not only see the Intel motherboards get sold out alot more often than any other brand, but you will also see that they get the very best reviews by both technicians and customers (newegg.com for instance). Intel is a whole lot better than ASUS, MSI, and Soyo.
I am guessing that you are one of the many people who hate large companies. On top of going against Intel, you must also say that Linux/Unix is much better than Microsoft (which is complete BS for general computer use).
Anyways... does any one have any idea what is wrong with my computer? All responses are greatly appreciated.
