I build my own and my motherboard of choice at the moment is ASUS so thats what I voted. I've used MSI, Gigabyte, Soyo and a few others over the years and they all seemed to have some kind of glitch or problem of some sort. My current system started as a bare bones from TigerDirect. I've upgraded a little bit and added a few parts and have had no problems what so ever. The ASUS motherboard is nothing fancy, its pretty basic. Maybe thats good a thing, there's less to go wrong.
