Default Motherboards: ASUS vs. GIGABYTE

How do "equivalent" ASUS and GIGABYTE motherboards compare? It is simply preference between these two brands or is one brand truly better than the other?

I prefer Asus. Last 2 gigabyte boards I've had (1 AM3, 1 1156) have been less than stellar. This Asus board is a breath of fresh air.

ASUS. No contest. This is my first build I didn't use ASUS. And it was simply a price matter.

Both Asus and Gigabyte make high quality boards. You can't go wrong with either. I myself have owned several of both and have never had any issues.
