Asus, Gigabyte, QDX, and an old TX or HX board that I can't remember the brand of.
I went from Asus P5-A ( Ali Magik 5 if I recall ) to A7V ( KT133 ) to A7V266-E ( KT266a ).
I've had a few problems here & there ( none with the P5-A though ) but I'm generally very pleased with their boards.
I'd rather pay a price premium in orther to get what I want.
I'm also a fan of Abit boards when it comes to overclocking but that's mostly for friends of mine.
MSI are quick to release cards based on the latest chipsets but that's about the only good thing I can find about them ( their latest cards are also full of features ).
Proprietary boards; compaq, dell, etc. are usually Intels'

Hmm Phant you really like to brag about your specs any chance you get don't you ?
Didou.post := Didou.post+1;
Not as such (there being folks here with much better machines.) Its more that any discussion of your machine's hardware probably should have your complete specs.
Hence the useful link called "My computer's specs"
Very true, it makes it easier to isolate a problem or give advice when you know what you are dealing with.
my first computer was a IBM, 166MHz, 32MB, 2.5G, etc.
the first computer i built (i am still using) is
2x 366 oc 550
40G IBM (died 3times)
abit's ideas rocks
the new MAX boards with only USB rocks.
the only drawback is the highpoint IDEs.
I have both an Asus A7V266 and an Abit BH-6. I'm very pleased with both, but I voted for Asus just because I use it more
Cool, 'brag' time. he he
1. Intel 810E
2. Integrated video (DC133 FSB133)
3. Integrated Sound Maxx III Digital Audio
4. PC133 SDRAM
5. Intel 82801AA Ultra ATA controller
6. TI OHCI IEEE 1394 host controller
7. Intel 82801AA LPC Interface Controller
8. Intel 82801AA PCI Bridge
9. Intel 82801AA SMBus controller
10. Intel 82801AA USB Universal Host Controller
11. 6 - USB ports
12. 2 - 1394 'Firewire' (400mhz) ports
Take that ! Lucky I didn't add my rockin' HD's, monitor, speakers etc. in this, but I didn't want to 'brag' too much. :rolleyes:
Have a good one,
I like ABit boards for Overclocking, Tyan for Stability, and Jetway for integrated/cheap boards.
Already voted on this poll when I had Soltek motherboard, now I have Abit BD7.
Bragging about an Intel 810E?
I don't even know what to say.
My school's lab (very low budget) uses 810E chipsets. I'm sorry JAV!
Now here's something to brag about
Here are my machines - it's almost complete
I've got the Abit KR7A-Raid here. Check my sig for my computer specs.
Therein lies the beauty of the board: cheap yet rugged, reliable & long lasting. Auto-detect for 66, 100 & 133mhz FSB. Auto-detect for 1.5-2.0v. UDMA133 & UATA133 support. USB 1.1 & 1EEE 1394 'Firewire'. Integrated audio & graphics for backup if you 'lose' a card. :grinthumb
Best of all: Intel support & continue driver/software 'updates'.
Have a good one & I'm not 'bragging': I was throwing my lowly system into the fray to level the playing field. Ya know: the tortoise did win that race. he he
That in itself was worth the post.
Yeah! My mobo won Silver at Sharky's
I use DFI mobo... but it's suck, don't buy this mobo and the technical support is really don't care about your problem.. :dead:
I suggest ASUS because its stability and always give an uptodate drivers :grinthumb
