    not so sure.
    I remember john lennon was putting down asus boards and saying that the epox ones were just as good, only a lot cheaper.
    I've never really read any reviews on them or seen any benchmarks so i dunno.

    I don't understand what this means.
    Two months to use what warrantee?
    Where is the "free" Epox coming from?

    Without knowing any of your PC's specifics, all I can say is that we have been quite pleased with Gigabyte boards lately, but the old faves- Asus and Abit, are good quality also.
    I avoid MSI and DFI unless the customer specifically requests them, but that's just a personal aversion (I've had trouble with both brands in my PC, but that's not statistically significant).

    Never tried an Epox so I don't know.

    Nyay.

    Asus has been good to me in the past, but my brother owns an Epox board now, which has been excellent so far, at a lower price to boot.

    But if there wasn't any price-difference I'd go with the Asus for old times' sake.
    Better overclocks there, I'd imagine.
