the best overall board out there right now is gigabyte.
amazing how no one mentions one of the top 5 motherboard makers in the world. "Gigabyte GA-7VRXP: One of the Best" - tomshardware. and you can read about it here, <A HREF="http://www.tomshardware.com/mainboard/02q2/020509/kt333-18.html" target="_new">http://www.tomshardware.com/mainboard/02q2/020509/kt333-18.html</A>
i have a gigabyte board i wouldn't buy a different brand ever. I like what they produce and it's by far very stable and coems bundled with a lot of stuff. no skimping from gigabyte!
