asus makes a great motherboard, installed two A7M mobos a few years ago and both computers are still running great, never had a hardware problem.

I have a 2 year old Asus P4B (time for an upgrade) The only time an Asus has gone is when I was in a hurry putting it into the new case (bye bye ugly Chieftec Plastic series TL-02W, Hello Codegen case) and forgot to install the spacers. (oops)
