    unfortunately we will have to wait for shipping versions of both boards to see what they truly offer...

    I have always used ASUS in the past. They're very reliable boards, and come with some of the best features.
    For example, back when I bought my PIII 550, the ASUS P3B-f was undoubtedly the most feature-rich board on the market, and it still works flawlessly even now. :)

    What kind of features are you looking for in the motherboard? SATA? RAID? Firewire? Brand wise I would say Asus, Abit (if you can afford it), gigabyte or epox (thats what I've got :D)

    I bought an Asus motherboard not too long ago (look at sig)
    and all I've had is trouble. I'm quite mad about the fact that
    I forked out money for an 8x graphics card and my motherboard is
    in-compatible with it.
    What about Gigabyte motherboards? They're quite good :)
