Re: Need some advice: Comparing motherboards...
so a unanimous vote for the Gigabyte motherboard then? Well OK. After comparing both closer, the GA-89 should have probably been the obvious choice. Though, I guess I did overlook the PCIe slot speeds... which would be another strike against the Asus board. Also, the shipping for for the GA-89 is a few dollars cheaper... small bonus there too.

I have had two Gigabyte motherboards in the past and both were very solid, though one of them did blow a couple capacitors... but still managed to work regardless. I can't say that I have ever owned an ASUS Motherboard, so I am very uncertain about the build quality in comparison. So it's nice to get some impressions from people who owned both.

Anyway thanks a lot for the input, guys.
