Let's see how the people feel. Vote on your Fav mobo maker. Factor in build quality, performance, cost vs quality, overclockability (if you're into that sort of thing), stability, available features, and tech support (if you have had to use them).

If I forgot a major manufacturer, let me know and I will add them.

Edit: You know where my vote went :mrgreen:

Ack my poll!! It went ByeBye!!!

Okay, my poll got totally messed up. Can a mod help me out here? By deleting the now (I hope) invisible totally screwed up poll?

Gigabyte since last week.

I used to like Biostar. Feature wise they're ok, but not great, cost wise they average, tech support is highly available! Gigabyte has croppy support, great features, ok prices.

Abit 1st, and second is gigabyte. (the only 2 i've ever built)

Abit has A+ tech support and is very overclockable. Abit was also very easy to work with. Gigabyte was decent, and that's all i can say.

From a overall value perspective, I like Shuttle for XP's. If I had to buy an Athlon64 board today I'd probably go with MSI. As far as Intel is concerned I've only used two, an intel 845 board and the second was an ASROCK X533. The intel board died a slow death after about 6 months, I was quite disappointed because I was going for a stable build. The ASROCK is still going strong, it was used to replace the intel board.

ive used gigabybe, abit, asus, intel, and azza I love the features and stability of the abit boards ive used, and asus is good... just no support if they do make a fluke, gigabyte was ok, intel is awesome, if you dont care about overclocking.... and azza well just stay away.....

so, order> abit, intel, asus, gigabyte, azza

So far my Soyo's been rock solid. Plus I checked out some of the reviews for the Dragon2 series...hot stuff coming down the pike.

aBit's also right up there with Soyo...MSI is decent, DFI is also respected. Have'ent used a gigabyte yet...

worst one?

PcChips....can't do much with 'em beyond an expensive doorstop or paperweight.

Guys, keep posting on those subjects and keep that thread live. That's when you posts are really useful. Hopefully, I won't have to do further research when I am about to build my next rig. I will have a winning brand in mind.

Didn't this get migrated to a poll elsewhere in the forum???
