    Ok I and no doubt others are confounded by the amount of boards that are out there, so i thought what better way than having a poll of your mobo's (no i siad mobo not mojo, of which i have plenty, being english and all haha:laugh: ).

    So in the poll above select which maker you think is the best, and then post the mobo you own with model and the pros and any cons you have with the board and if possible the price, Also include the socket type as well.

    The winner gets, well a warm handshake and merry christmas.

    Well I've got a Mac now so it won't really apply. I've had good experience with ASUS boards, which is why I chose it. I've had a bad experience with MSI and my brother had bad luck with a Gigabyte, otherwise those two would have also been in the running for my vote.

    I can't recommend a current model because I don't have experience with them. My vote was based on perceived manufacturing quality based on past experience. :)

    Agree with Muzi on ASUS. I like my 533FSB, and besides some minor issues with the onboard LAN - it's been solid for 3 years, 3 months.

    Voted for ASUS, mainly based on my experience with my old desktop that's now being used by my parents.

    It's an ASUS P3B-f board (Slot 1 Pentium III) and it's been running for about 7 years now. Very solid board with some great features for its time.

    My new desktop which I built in November has an ASUS A8N-SLi Deluxe board (Socket 939 AMD64) and although I haven't really had a chance to use the system much yet (it's at home, will be bringing it back in January), it looks like another good, reliable board and has received good reviews everywhere.

    I voted Asus, I have owned a few of their boards through the years and never had a issue with any of them. Great boards!

    Same here, but that new chipset fan is a lot better then the old one... it doesnt scream like the old one did.
