Gigabyte I have found to have very overpriced motherboards from my point of view, no offence.

Maybe in England, but certainly not here in the States. They typically offer some of the best prices and build top quality boards.

Agreed, price to performance is very good. My current build features my first foray into Gigabyte and am extremely happy with it. Next build will probably have a Gigabyte board as well.

I can't complain much about Gigabyte either.
They are usually on par or cheaper than the competition.

Every one of thier boards Ive dealt with has been and reliable and easy to work with.
You can't really ask for much more than that.
