ASUS usually produces solid equipment, but if I were in your shoes, I'd definitely explore after that experience.
I've been running my Gigabyte board for the last 2+ years without incident. Have you used Gigabyte boards in the past? There will always be people who've had bad experiences, but most who've had good experiences won't necessarily post anything.
At this point, there are no brands I'd choose other than Gigabyte and ASUS.
I have one 865 ASUS board that has been running since 2004 with a prescott 2.8 GHz processor in it. I actually might be decommisioning it soon but it still runs like a dream.
Actually, I have 5 PCs with ASUS boards (865PE through H61 none of which have failed). My hardcore gaming machine is in my signature and is a Gigabyte.
Short story long... Just saying you should probably consider the Gigabyte.
