the intel boards will be solid , dependable and about as exciting as a brick in a paper bag .

The Asus a quality product , but is old . It has a G31 chipset . Id look for a later model with at least a G33/G35 chipset

Gigabyte is a good quality board. The p45 is a good chipset, but you could also look for p43's. They provide a little faster bus and more options for upgrades later.
