As far as <i>brand</i> goes, all are equally good.
In regard to the specific boards, the TUSL2 is the successor of the Asus CUSL2-C. The CUSL2-C has been arguably the best i815 motherboard ever made--rock solid, excellent peformance, outstanding overclockability, great compatability, etc. etc. etc.
Just take a look at all the benchmarks and reviews.......since the TUSL2-C is the successor of the CUSL2--the same exact board with the support of the Tualatin, you would think it is just as good.

Ok, i guess i'll go for the Asus TUSL2.

Stability is most important for me, but what do you think about the Abit ST6, i read about the Softmenu 3 and stuff like that which makes Abit great for overclocking.
Or is Asus just as good?

I have used ASUS for 7 years with great success. I have an CUSL2-C and a new A7V266-E both are rock stable. My son has
an ABIT KG7 raid and is very pleased with it also. ASUS and ABIT are great for oc. You would like either brand.

Yep, I'll choose Asus.

But what differences there are between TUSL2 and TUSL2-C ?
TUSL2 has integrated graphics, right? Any other differences?
And what is TUSL2-C WOA ??

Well, I guess the TUSL2-C would be the best choice because i don't want anything integrated stuff.
And TUSL2-C doesn't have anything integrated, except optional audio, right?
But i still didn't find what's with that TUSL2-C WOA ??

Oh, now i get it! WOA means "with out audio" right? It doesn't have integrated audio.

Ok, one more thing...is the integrated audio any good, or should i get the WOA-version (it's cheaper) and a "real" soundcard instead?
Thanks for any comments.

The onboard sound is ok but I think you would be more happy with a
added sound card. Turtle beach Santa Cruz is very good and stable.

Most people that overclock the Celeron's that I talk to prefer the ST6, better voltage control I believe...
there is an issue of using memory at CAS2 @ 133, but I've only seen where one guy had that problem, it may have been an isolated incident.
