Yup. I've only used Asus/Foxconn for the last decade. Only problem I ever had was an old S7 board who's VIA chipset didn't properly support the AGP spec making it impossible to upgrade from my Voodoo to an ATI Rage 128.

I didnt even know EVGA made motherboards so i don't know how good they are but to me personally the board doesn't look too bad, it would look even better if it was in a color schemed case.

Had my own EVGA NForce 680i board for my bro's machine. Solid as a rock with no issues whatsoever, but for my personal systems I'm personally more trusting of the companies that actually design and make the product themselves like Asus and Gigabyte. Also I have to agree with lowfat and Soultribunal that "e" on the heat sink is ugly

Yeah but ASUS really doesn't anymore. From my understanding a lot of ASUS is designed by ECS now.....google it...I was shocked too. ASRock is doing pretty good by having ASUS's old FAB to do there boards. Tends to make them better.

Intel is well trusted by me because IIRC Foxconn does most of there work and its quality.

EVGA as I stated lost most of my faith when X58 ended...

Wow your correct. Never thought Asus would offload manufacturing duties of their mobo's but given the state of the world economy maybe it shouldn't be too shocking.

Every time I try to look at an EVGA product I find myself either looking at an ASUS or Gigabyte product. Maybe its the shiny colors or the great quality, but both work very well on me.
