I've never had an Asus board personally, but i've had an MSI K7T266 Pro2-A that crashed and burned.....twice.
That, and hearing that they cheated with their gfx cards (some kind of auto-overclock when being benched), gives me enough reason to avoid MSI in the future.

NZXT Guardian Case with Thermaltake PurePower 420w
FIC AU13 motherboard
AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 333FSB (Barton) with Thermaltake Silent Boost HSF
WDC 80Gb 8Mb cache 7200rpm
512Mb Kingston Dual-channel PC3200
MCP-T SoundStorm audio (integrated)
ATi Radeon 9800 Pro (it owned, until x800 and 6800)
Logitech Z-680 5.1 speaker system (integrated Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS, Pro Logic II decoding)
Logitech Cordless Elite Duo keyboard & mouse
Saitek Cyborg Evo joystick

MSI has somewhat lackluster boards and mediocre tech support. ASUS boards are much more stable and expandable overall, and tend to handle memory faster (or so I've heard). I have an MSI board and I hate the damn thing!
