I like ASUS mb's, i've built several that worked great and only once had a mb fail on me before it was outdated, and that one looked hokey before i put it together, got it at a computer trade show and it had a wire on the bottom where it looked like it was rigged to get it to pass muster, i took it apart and sent it back within a day after i built it.
My last build is using an MSI board Z68A-GD55 (B3), using a home theater case that looks more like a stereo component than a computer, it sits in the living room and is working fantastic a year later. I used a i5 chip instead of the i7, and have 16 gigs of ram, and two pci exp 5770 cards running in crossfire mode, which still works better than the built in video chipset that is available should i want to utilize it. I've built every computer that i've used since 1994, and this one is by far the most powerful and user friendly, and i have the option to upgrade the cpu to an i7 if i choose to, but so far haven't seen the need. It plays any game with ease, and works well with the dual monitor setup i'm using next to the lazy boy recliner in the family room where i can watch tv on the plasma, while playing games on the pc on one 23 inch monitor, and surfing the web on the 2nd screen.
