MSI makes the best boards out there actually. Granted it was an INTEL study, but about a year ago when they were having issues with MB production, they ran the top 5 manufactureres through their quality control environment, and MSI came out as good as intel boards..

just my 2 cents. I have had an Asus board that never gave me trouble at all.. its about 6 years old now, and still runs like a champ.. at 700mhz..
