I was going to get a msi motherboard(z77a-g45), but then I saw all the complaints and issues with them not working etc.
Which brands would you recommend that have a good reputation with reliability.
i do like asus myself but i would not look down my nose at asrock, gigabyte or MSI.
not every manufacturer is perfect; there are bound to be DOAs or new boards that are released with a flaky BIOS. i also avoid reading reviews posted by morons on a sites like new egg; most couldn't tie a shoe w/o falling down. i read reviews, if available, from reputable sites.
