I had quite a few Palit cards over the years, I stopped using Asus motherboards and switched to Supermicro. ... EVGA, silverstone for PSUs and crucial/micron for memory.
Motherboard brands that I've owned: Biostar, ASRock, MSi, ECS/Elitegroup and Gigabyte
GPU brands that I've owned: ATi, Albatron, Palit, XFX, Gigabyte, nVidia and Sapphire
PSU brands that I've owned: OCZ, Corsair, EVGA, Gigabyte (and a bunch of no-namers)
In general if you want something good make sure it hasn't got any RGB saying gaming on it but at the same time it's not the cheapest brand available.
Yep, I avoid RGB because I'd rather they spend more on the product and not the lighting. However, I ALWAYS buy the cheapest brand available when it comes to motherboards and video cards. It's something I had learnt when I worked for Tiger Direct because the differences between them are slight at worst and non-existent at best. My two XFX HD 4870s still work like the day I bought them and so too does my Palit 8500 GT. I threw out my Albatron FX-5200 and XFX 6200 because those were AGP and so became useless.
Out of all of those, only my MSi motherboard failed and it was a K9A2 Platinum, MSi's flagship AMD 790FX motherboard. It only lasted 15-16 months and so I said "I'm not paying top-dollar for a motherboard ever again!" and replaced it with a cheap ECS IC780M-A2. I gave it to my mother with my Phenom II X4 940 for her HTPC about eight years ago and now I have it again because I replaced it with an FX-8350 so that she could use Windows 10. That cheap as dirt board still
works to this day.
As long as it's a brand that you're familiar with, you don't need to worry when it comes to motherboards and video cards. Now, I agree that PSUs are different but I've never had a no-name PSU fail on me. The most ironic thing that I've ever encountered in my 34½ years of building PCs is that when I worked at Tiger Direct, I learnt that having a good brand-name PSU is extremely important and I also learnt about the 80+ system. Back then there was 80+, 80+Bronze, 80+Silver and 80+Gold. No Platinum or Titanium yet.
So, armed with this new knowledge, I replaced whatever no-name PSU I was using with an OCZ GameXStream 1000W PSU because I was jumping from my Palit GeForce 8500 GT to an XFX Radeon HD 4870 and I wanted no problems. OCZ had bought PC Power and Cooling, a legendary PSU company, not long before and the GameXStream had a 3-year warranty so I figured "I should have no issues with this". I was wrong and the OCZ GameXStream, my first brand-name PSU, failed while I was attending university less than a year after purchase.
To their credit, OCZ replaced it with an OCZ Z1000, a 1000W 80+Gold PSU with a single 84A 12V rail, a far more expensive model than the GameXStream. However, that one didn't even last as long as my GameXStream did (I know, it was insane) and six months later, I had to RMA the Z1000. Happy ending though because OCZ replaced that one with an OCZ Z1000M which is the same as the Z1000 but fully modular. That one still works and I used it in a mining rig with an FX-8350, RX 5700 XT and RX 6800 XT for 6 months, running it 24/7. No problems, ever.
So, the first time I paid big for a motherboard, I got burnt. The first time I paid big for a PSU, I also got burnt. It doesn't matter what the brand is because the odds of something going wrong are astronomically small, no matter what brand you buy. Even the Biostar A320MH that I bought on clearance for $40 at Canada Computers works just fine. I didn't even need it, I just couldn't say no to a new AM4 motherboard for $40.
