Missing Intel in that list. As for reliability and stability.

And Shuttle and Jetway and I could go on. Most people will say Abit, Asus, MSI not necessarely in that order.
We hate rut, but we fear change.

Abit Abit Abit! The best maker out there dude! 3 Year Warranty, Rubycon - defect-free transistors, masterful layout, nice looking pcb, more overclocking options than an army could shake sticks at, blatantly easy to use and get going, and after everything, insanely stable - wheter overclocked by 660 mhz, or putting along with stock. You can even RMA direct to abit if you got a problem. Need any more reasons not to choose Abit?

If you're asking RIGHT NOW, I'd say Abit for the P4 boards. Hard to say for AMD... I love the performance, but the layout stinks. But things so rapidly over time... For all we know, another brand could step up as the best overall in just a few months time. The market is too volatile for that.
Imagine some brand like Soyo becoming like Abit 2 months from now!
