Default i personally like

asus, they rock! i would go check out www.newegg.com, as they have some of the best prices i have seen, for 1200$ you could get a pretty kickass mobo/proc/video card, easily

I personally like SOYO motherboards! Basically never had problems with them and have a good tech-support!
