Default Building a desktop

Hi I'm starting to buy parts to build a new desktop, and saw a foxconn motherboard for a great price.
What advice do you guys have on that brand...

Persoally, I think they're better than GIGABYTE since my mom's Foxconn has more than doubled the life of my GIGABYTE. This was the one I got her since her RAM slots fried. Foxconn 740G and so far it's be doing great. Not a single problem on my end.

Abit made some great boards, sadly they're out of the motherboard business now.
