Default Core 2 Mobos, whats in your rig?

After seeing a lot of sigs with what either Asus or EVGA, I just was curious to see the % breakdown.

Vote for the board you're using right now with your Core 2 or the one you plan on buying next.

Sorry if I missed a manufacturer, I could only go to 10 choices instead of the 15 I wanted to.
You can vote multiples, cause I know some of you have multiple rigs.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

Using Asus P5N32 SLi Plus, Love it but I might go DFI again. I was never a fan of Asus and this one really proved that I could like their products but im too much a DFI lover to ignore their offerings.
