    Be sure you know the cause of the failure. EVGA boards have been very good for us. Despite your 700 watt power supply, some brands have been known to cause failures of motherboards. It is difficult to comment futher without knowning which CPU you intend to use. We recommend ASUS, Gigabyte, Intel, FoxConn, MSI, BIOStar, and MSI for reliability and long life.
    You might want to read some of the motherboard reviews at www.tomshardware.com and www.anandtech.com.
    I would go for a FoxConn for Reliability, Intel for ease of install, Gigabyte, EVGA, or ASUS for power gaming.
    Tell us more of what you plan to use from the failed board... CPU, power supply brand and model, Videographics.
