    Back before 2000 I also was an Asus user/supporter BUT as soon as there customer support fell, I dropped Asus like a rock. Now I have been using Gigabyte in all my editing stations and never looked back. IMO, Gigabyte has outstanding customer support and excellent built quality on there higher end products. Plus I've had some of my friends who have walked way from Asus for their own reasons too. I haven't used an Asus board for over 7 years so I don't know if things have improved but in any case Gigabyte has been great for me ever since and I have zero need to look at Asus.

      This was not the kind of discussion I had hoped for. All I needed was some good advice about the newer Asus series and the series who are still selling, cause the list on the website is some outdated.

      I'm not that good in computer hardware, so I'm depending on the resellers build. I also just make videos for pleasure, nothing to do with my profession. I want to buy a stable computer who will work for a couple of years, but I won't edit all days long. So it must be within limits of hobby use. If I could install it my own, it would be cheaper and I could use the components I will, but I've no experience in working with BIOS and so. My last PC was self builded, but it was all installed in AUTO mode. For editing PCs I've read that's not the way to go and now I start over (come from Adobe premiere) I want to do it right.

      For now the offers contain either an Asus P5K PRO or an Intel DP35DP. Because I don't know Intel boards and never had problems with my Asus board I prefer the Asus one. But this one isn't in the compatibility list, that's why I questioned.

      P.S.: I found this in a reply to the Gigabyte accusations: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/736/5/

        Hi!

        I´m using for about 6 weeks an Asus P5Q Pro with an Intel Q6700 and 4GB Ram PC800 under WinXP Pro 32bit without any problems so far!

          Me too ! Same, but just an E8200 and new power supply. Why ? Well, it upgrades my old, good, Giga K7 Triton very cheaply ($1170 NZD or about USD$720 ) and will take new CPU when it comes out. 2 dvi's and the E Sata works well. Runs "Broadcast" fine and so should be same on E5 shortly. The little CPU gets to 99% on both when converting M2t's ex Z1/Firestore to HQ so I just go off for lunch ! Broadcast gets the jitters if I run both and do transitions etc at same time. I already had good HDs--320(10000rpm) and 3 of 1TB enterprise class. So, yes quite a cheap rig can run Edius OK. My old one crashed at installation settings ! Check the BIOS-- it showed my HD's voltage in red--- next size up Thermaltake PS fixed that.
          We poor guys can learn our editing too ! !

            Hi Eric,
            I noticed you said it will support the new CPU when it comes out, what are you talking about? your board is socket 775 which intel have finished, the new socket coming out from intel is socket 1366, these new CPU'S will not fit your board.

              May I ask why nobody looks at the new Intel X48(Desktop Board DX48BT2) or MSI P45 ,a few years a go I used gigabite only had problems it was exchanged and had other problems , the supplier them give me a Intel MB and it is still running no down time with my DV storm, I the last few yr i bought some more intel MB never haveing problems I also have 2 Msi cheaper MB which I use a for SD with no down time and very stable.

              We are are looking to up grade early next yr and I am stuck between Asus INTEL what do i do ?
