I voted for the Gigabyte. The Asus board has too many funky things like 28 jumpers on-board! :roll:

Overheat protection is not as vital as some are making it out to be. I have only one board that has anything close to that and I've got it disabled. What I DON'T have disabled is the CPU fan warning and shut down. That's the only one you really need to worry about. 8)

I chose the Gigabyte as I have had a friend who had experience with that ASUS board. He bought it online and got it, and upon plugging it in, not a damn thing worked. It said that the CPU was bad. Indeed the CPU was bad, but when he bought a new CPU and put it in, it said that that CPU was bad too, which it was not.[Sound familiar anybody??] With over 36 jumpers, troubleshooting can be a pain in the buttocks. And since most people would disable them through BIOS anyway, why did they even waste space with adding them. I like Gigabyte because you CAN change their AGP voltage, and their CPU core voltage can be turned to 1.925v, versus standard 1.85v. Plus the Gigabyte does have a NIC. Btw Datektrader, you have problems.

you left out the part about how easy it was to get the board returned and replaced, anyhow they pay the return shipping :D short of that 59 bucks for 120 dollar board is still a sweet deal even if it had to be returned onceImage
