That is a very good motherboard if you're after a non SLi motherboard. I probably would suggest equivalents to the MSI, and so there is no real point. I'm just curious as to what you want out of the board? Do you want a gaming PC? Or just a slave machine?

Specify what you want the PC to do, and I can give you more advice

ASUS is not bad. They used to be the best, but now their okay. DFI, ABIT and MSI are some of the best too.

That's a good motherboard. Other reputable manufacturers are Asus, Abit, GIgabyte, and MSI. Other ok ones are AOpen, ASRock, and Biostar.

Get the new nForce 4 chipset for whatever motherboard you choose.

EPoX makes some great motherboards too, especially if you're on a budget!
