    It depends. The ROG series is definitely overpriced, but even enthusiasts don't really need the ROG boards. The standard boards still offer great features for much cheaper, and if you get one on sale they offer a great value. Both of my M5990X Evo's I got for under $100 from newegg, that is a great value.

    But at the same time ASRock is my choice for real value if I can't find a decent deal on an ASUS board. ASRock always offers a great value.

    With all the BIOS support Shamino has given us for advanced memory/cpu tweaking I consider the extra paid over another high end board the minimum due to pay, trust me. ;)

    But the ends don't justify the means, price for a high end board is way out of reach for most folks. MSI makes some good mid level boards, BioStar makes some good priced over clockable boards. $400 for a high end Asus board is simply too much IMHO.
    Then in two months when a new line up comes out, then you have to run out and buy a new $400 board so you can have the latest and greatest. Mean while no one will pay half of what the original board cost used.

    I prefer ASRock or MSI for nice builds.
    For really budget builds the occassional ECS or Biostar board.
    I dislike Gigabyte. ASUS is fine I guess but usually not the best deal.
