[OC3D Poll] What motherboard manufacturer shall you be siding with this time around?

Following on from our recent poll on whether or not you'll be buying Haswell, here's another one to see what manufacturers have done the best at attracting you to their products.

By now we all should have seen the teaser photos from Asus, ASRock, Gigabyte, and MSI alike, so you should have a reasonably good idea as to who you're going to go for, who you'd recommend, or at least who you like the look of most so far.

Be sure to comment about your choices below, but make sure you vote!

From the ones I have seen so far and if I decide to go ahead with my build, Gigabyte.

It all depends on price, price of other boards and their features. Buying a board based solely on looks is kinda dumb, especially if you are paying over the odds compared to other boards with the same, or even better features for a better price.

Also depends on reviews, i'd never buy a motherboard, or anything else for that matter, until I have read/watched several reviews.

As for recommendations, go for the board that has the features you need, at the best price. All the top manufacturers make good boards, non of them are better than each other, they just offer different things at different prices.

Yeah, I don't like the look of the new MPower boards at all, so I'll probably go Gigabyte (They always make some sexy black boards) or the Asus Sabertooth. But as SieB said; It all depends on the prices.

That orange Gigabyte one is calling me but if it has a black PCB and not red like the ROG stuff then I'd be happy.

I've never been unhappy with an Asus board. I'm a big believer in them and think their high end offerings are the best available. Can't go wrong with Gigabyte or MSI either, but I'm a little more comfortable with Asus.
