I think it's depending u wanna do with the mobo..
if u wanna play with OC, then DFI..
Else for stability, u cannot go wrong with Abit or Asus..
Both brands are good, down to personal preference..

To tell you honestly guys I dunno how "mild" I want to be hehe... I'm really eyeing for the DFI mobo coz of their OC rep.... but having 2nd thought of this mobo because of RAM issues.... right now I'm using Geil Valueram (those with blue heatsink, and I have no planning of upgrading for now) and looking at their website there's no support for this said RAMS that's why...

For OC before I thought I had enough... coz tried it on my Socket A it works great, that's why Im planning to upgrade to try my luck on S939....
