    That's a tough one, i mean there are a lot of great manufactures that have boards in a ton of different price ranges. EVGA, Gigabyte, ASUS, MSI are generally some of the best.

    I'm personally a huge fan of EVGA boards, from my experiences they have some great quality boards with great overclocking potential, i also love the color scheme they go for generally, they have a very bad ass look to them. EVGA also has some great programs like step-up and they also give away a lot of free games just by purchasing there cards. So i really like them, but i really wouldn't say they're ''the best'', as i would pretty much go for any solid board made by those other companies i mentioned above.

    But really people have different experiences with different manufacturers.

    Tough decision, but over the years i say i must have to lean towards MSI for an overall.

    same for me too.
    I have also used foxconn and they aren't bad but there are only a few that are really good.

    Im not sure on the intel side of things, but gigabyte has memory issues with AMD systems, not sure if their latest line has fixed this issue yet or not. They will not run at advertised speeds. Their buil quality is good. I dislike how several of their boards are like a quarter of an inch narrower than a regular atx board, so a good portion goes unsupported.

    Ever since DFI got out of the game, I lean towards Asus.

    I personally like Asus and will continue to use them until something goes wrong and customer support won't help.

    BTW, why are you whoring for thanks here? No need to thank you for making a poll.

    even though i own a asus board then i think GB is my alltime fav board maker

    stability, good overclockers, and they always works imo

    if i were to get a new board today, id go for a GB board

    I personally like Gigabyte, I've had several boards from them over the years. In the up and coming category I like AsRock, they aren't just budget boards anymore:eek:

    I will miss Abit greatly when it comes to my next upgrade. Used Abit for many a build and many of them are still alive and kicking. I don't care much for Gigabyte as I dislike their BIOS setup greatly. Never touched ASUS as they are too "gimmicky" so I will remain undecided....

    Top notch quality, customer service, documentation, and more. They've got the whole package. I'll continue to buy their boards until they do me wrong.
