My opinion on EVGA mother boards is that they look really nice, function great, but are not worth the money. You can get something just as good as some of the EVGA mother boards for half the price. There's nothing wrong with them and if you have a large amount of money to spend, by all means, go for an EVGA mother board. Generally, as far as mother boards go, you get what you pay for, but sometimes you don't need that much. Really what you are paying for with EVGA mother boards is their looks, and they are actually quite reliable. If you want to save some money though, you could get something much cheaper that is pretty much the same. What board in particular were you looking at?
