You'll find many different opinions on this. I'm an Asus kind of guy and haven't had many problems with them (but I haven't used an Asus board recently as I've been trying Gigabyte and Intel).

The Gigabyte and Intel boards weren't "certified" for Vista - but they were the best bet at the time I purchased them (Vista was still in beta). The Gigabyte board has some minor quirks - but they may not be the fault of the board, but rather the fault of Vista or the stuff that I've piled on it. I'm almost ready to ditch the Intel board because of Vista issues tho'.

Well really this depends on what you are meaning to do. Now I will NEVER recommend the Emachine brand as it is just VERY cheap. I will tell you now as a prediction, if you buy a Emachine then either your Motherboard or PSU will die, or even both.

Well here are my choices and my standards:

Dell - For the normal, non-enthusiast, person. The Dell BIOS was not built for a tech person, but more like for a person who will never touch the BIOS in their computing life.

Asus - For better then normal user, I would recommend this for normal use. Great computer manufacturer and I love the Gigabyte brand that you put above.

Alienware - For the best of the best computers, these bad boys are built towards video editing, high level gaming, and water cooling. If your doing major graphics work like with a 8800 GTX Graphics Card. Not for cheap people :huh:

I hope this answered your question :thumbsup:

Well...that depends on what you mean by "computer company."

Unless you are talking about a whole system, rather than components, there is no valid comparison of ONE best company.

If talking about turnkey systems for users who don't want to know how anything works or who don't want to maintain/repair the system, Dell is probably a prudent choice, IMO.

All other components boil down to user personal preferences, I think. I've had motherboards and systems that many sneer at, but there's only one test for me (does it work?) and I can't really exclude anyone, using that criterion.

But :huh:...the comment about eMachines and PS failures is right on :thumbsup:. I'm surprised that Dell doesn't have more of those, considering that they tend to use the least powerful PS in their systems for the average customer.

Another to shy away from Is ECS or Elite Computer Systems. I have had good luck with MSI, Biostar, and gigabyte Boards myself. As mentioned above its a personal experience/preference. I so far have let online reviews, price and availability of the options I want dictate what I buy.
