I would say "none of the above". Nearly every board maker has some of it's boards farmed out. It really depends on the model number. Asus has some of it's boards made by ecs, which many have bad mouthed. But I've never had a serious problem with them. They just don't spend as much on support, which reduces their costs. If abit had been better managed, they might still be in business. Abit was my favorite for a long time.

If u want a new CPU i would say go with the Q6600 its an excellent overclocker for a 775 socket and get a Corsair DDR2 ram u wont see any difference with DDR3 unless u got a at least core i5 and the graphics card is good but its kinda out of date i would suggest to get a GTX 460 and a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P but these all deppends on your bugdet, what is ur bugdet? we need to know.

You cant judge that none of the motherboards brands are not good without proof :??: 

I agree that it also depends on the model number but some company's make higher quality motherboards than others u cant just say none of the brands make quality boards.

Add 1 more gigabyte fan. I was a die hard ASUS fan until I had two P800 MBs fail on me, taking the cpu with them. If you aren't interested in overclocking, then I would suggest an i5 system, prices have dropped. If you are after a socket 775, I recommend the Q9550 over the Q6600, (die shrink and high stock clock). I have a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P board and a Q9550 system that have have clocked to 3.91 ghz.
