Whats the best MB performance/features wise? Please back up your response with evidence. Make sure to give the actual board name, not just the brand.

The best depends on what you need it for. I love my speedy Soltek (SL-75DRV5), but to somebody who wants loads of onboard features it's not worth it.
You should fold.

I'm gonna go with ASUS as a the company that sells some of the best motherboards around. I don't prefer any specific model. But I've had several ASUS motherboards in my time and loved every one of them!

Currently I'm running an ASUS p4s8x. Very stable, and fast......I use my system for highend multimedia.

But at what point in time eh? Just a couple of years ago, if you wanted the best, you got an intel motherboard. Today, you have many choices. Which form factor and CPU will you be going with?
In my opinion, the best motherboard is the one that is the most stable, has an easy to read and understand manual, and has the right features for an individual user.

I think without a doubt Asus makes the best motherboards. I recently owned a Abit board and was happy with it, but I am overjoyed with my new Asus board.

I forgot to give some evidence for loving my Asus A7V-333X. I love this board because of it's onboard features for one it has onboard audio, then it has onboard LAN also it supports 333 FSB not to mention the fact that ASUS has a good reputation.

So far I like both of my MSI boards, 875p neo lsr and 655 max ls. They both run stable and fast in games and other programs. They were very easy to get up and running. Tech support is also very helpful(even though I come here for that). They come full featured and all the hardware and connections you would need.
CPU = Intel 3.06ghz
MOTHERBOARD = MSI 875P NEO LSR
RAM = Corsair 1024mb PC2700 XMS
OS = Win XP Sp2
POWER SUPPLY = Antec true power 480w
VIDEO CARD = PNY GF 6600 256MB
CASE =Antec PLUSVIEW 1000AMG
DVD = Lite on 16x
CDRW = Lite on 52x-24x-52x

Smurf_Pimp- I am currently using a Gigabyte GA-7VAXP with a AMD XP2000. The machine rocks. But Gigabyte was not my first choice for a MoBo. I was considering a Soltek board but I had no local resellers for them. My bro went to Houston and for Christmas I recieved the Gigabyte board. It came packed with features. But at this time I would not consider any MoBo that did not have the NForce2 chipset and at present Gigabyte refuses to pick up the product. I am looking to upgrade my unit, but I am still torn between the Intel Vs AMD thing. But at this time I am not looking for just anything to get me by. It comes back to one of my mottos " it only takes a nickle more to go first class, so go ahead and spend the money...."..... :wink: Will :wink:
