Asus makes great boards. As with all electronics you get hit’s and misses and sometimes boards are bad. I’ve owned several ASUS boards over the years and for the most part I have been very satisified with them. I like this Intel based board and for the price of $229 you are getting a lot. Load the board up with the I7 and 16GB of DDR3 and you have a nice system. Don’t forget the video card!. The board does support SLI/CrossfireX as you would imagine it would.
