Question What motherboard do you guys use and do you like its performance??

I'm just getting so frustrated with trying to decide what MoBo I wanna get, anyone who wants to participate in this little poll just post what your motherboard is and rate it on a scale of 1 to 10. And any other suggestions you have an ideal motherboard would be great too

I prefer Gigabyte or Asus
the board you should get depends on your CPU socket, and the components it needs to support

well obviously but I'm gonna get an AMD 64 bit Socket 939 ... but I'm struggling between Gigabyte/Asus VS Abit

Do not use Gigabyte if that is the case. Their line of boards for the Athlon64 are based on the first K8 architecture plans by AMD.

Therefore they do not have support for the low latencies that are presently on the market.

The Abit AV8 Third Eye is the best mobo out right now for the socket 939 processors.
