    I've always used Asus, but I've put Gigabyte ones in builds I've done for other people. Neither brand has caused me any trouble...

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which motherboard manufacturer do you trust most?

    Got an Asus board at the moment and have had no problems but i'd trust all the big one ie: Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, EVGA, Asrock. It is just down to whoever has the best board for me.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which motherboard manufacturer do you trust most?

    I vote MSI, Gigabyte and ASUS. Other than some weakness/weird quirks in the boards I've owned, none of them have failed just yet.

    Probably Gigabyte.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
