    Could every one of you in this forum tell me about your brand name of the mainboard, please?!
    I'm wondering what brand name of the mainboard you foreigners are impressed in your mind?

    Thanks so much!

  4. ASUS

    You just can't beat the reliability and performance of Asus, but Abit and MSI are close seconds.

    Re: ASUS

    Indeed, I couldn't beat the stability of Asus, which has been famous of it for a long time.
    But I really love MSI because it brings me profits after I bought the stock of it.:D :D

    Yeah, it's also one of my good reasons to own an MSI mainboard.

    I'd say Abit, if you check www.overclockers.com and there cpudatabase for Barton2500. The top OCs all use the Abit NF7-S. So at the moment that is the board I'm planning on getting.

    I'm a Epox fan...currently with Abit though (for under 70 bucks I thought that it was the best bang for the buck).

    Asus all the way.

    The only time I would ever buy anything apart form an Asus, is if an Asus equivilent is not available, eg. my new Shuttle, and if I get one, A Via Eden CPU & Mobo.

    Bad motherboards? Well Jetway make the baby Jesus cry.

    I've never seen a bad asus mobo, they're always chocked full of OC options and bios customization.

    You pay a bit more for Asus, but it's worth it.

    I'd really like to quote your opinion over this brand, ASUS, in order to express the status in Taiwan DIY market.
    Here in Taiwan, P4P800 has been notorious for its on-board gigabyte LAN chip, 3COM. This on-board chip has baffled us DIY users for a long time. They have met the problem as listed below,

    1. must un-install the on-board 3COM LAN chip, and be replaced with such a cheapest Realtek's 8139 LAN card.

    2. must un-install the PC-Cillin, or they can not log on the internet.

    I'm wondering if you foreigners might have met these kinds of problem?!

    Reliability and performance of Asus??? Well, for what i know, ASUS, SOYO and others becomes average mobos compared to MSI Gigabyte and ABIT.
    I personally used DFI some time ago, and loved it! SOYO and ASUS have nothing more than a myth brand-name, all in it's long past, used various ASUS boards and many of them sucked hard! The same goes to SOYO Boards...
    ASUS = A SUCKY UNSTABLE SYSTEM

    BTW try yourself DFI and ABIT boards, they will make you happiest enough to not remembering ASUS or SOYO names.....

    Asus is my choice, but if i had to choose again i would of choose ABIT for my mobo.... But they are both great... I never tried a MSI board..... But i've tried a Gigabyte and that is nice but they are old boards... for P3 but now the Gigabytes aint all that great...

    ASUS - fast, great quality, costs $$$ but worth it (since your m/b is the most important component.

    GIGABYTE - great quality and stable, reasonable cost: just don't expect to be a speed-demon.

    ABIT - I used to be a huge Abit supporter until i got stung with a VP6 board which had faulty capacitors because abit used CHEAP & NASTY parts. They still seem to have this problem, so i would advise against abit for longterm purchases (2-3years).
