    :hsugh: What kind of question is that? IMO they are better than Asus / MSI crap. I have had a lot less problems with my GA-P35-DQ6 than ever did with the last 5 Asus motherboards I've used.

    I had/have one in the system I built before this one, have had zero problems with it. Now that system is sitting in the closet as a backup if this one takes a shit.

    I'm using a GA 965 DS3. Solid caps and nice mb. I'd take an ASUS or this one, theyre pretty similar.
    But obviously I chose a GA so....

    I like Asus motherboards, but I've had good luck with other Gigabyte-branded components and it's pretty obvious that GB is gunning for Asus' market share, so I'd be willing to buy one if I couldn't find an Asus board I liked.

    i've had a gigabyte mobo fail on me after a year. however, i've worked on computers that have never had trouble with them after years

    yeah, they're cheap and most people will crap on them. i would spend a little more and get something else
