I have had good luck with ECS & Gigabyte. But I will always get Gigabyte as a First Choice

AsRock is made by ASUS; the ASRock boards are great but usually will lack some OC features and yet still OC quite well. With the ASRock you will almost always have legacy IDE connection whereas ASUS boards have dropped it all together on their newer boards

Well this was the ASrock i was looking at it seems pretty good im not going to over clock like crazy, Newegg.com - ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard it went down so it was more expensive i guess.

I have an Asus P5Q Pro in one machine and a Gigabyte EX58-UD5 in another.
Had the Asus for quite a while and it has been great. I'm also very pleased with the Gigabyte but the Asus has some form of small Linux OS on it (ExpressGate) which enables you to get online.
It's a bit like safe mode, low res etc. It really saved me once when Windows wouldn't boot as I could get to this forum and get help.
I'm not sure whether this comes with their entire range but I think it's a great idea.

Definitely Asus or Gigabyte get more for your money.

As the masses have said, I choose Asus. Great performance, good price, very few problems.
