    Thats it Marketing, and marketing only..... But if you want a rock solid stable board go with Gigabyte.They seam to support large amounts of ram a bit better I find, among other things.

    Gotta be a reason why nearly 70% of editors use Asus and most NLE manufacturers recommend them.
    Yes: marketing.

    Didn't say anything was wrong with them, Asus or Gigabyte, I just now use gigabyte boards as the Bios's have more feature and I like the build quality more, (but you have got to have a bit of knowledge on Bios's and how to set them up properly) once you set up a Gigabyte board correctly they are rock solid,This is why they keep winning motherboards of the year all over the world, even for server and workstation boards, and lets not forget they did invent the dual and Quad bios after the Chernobyl virus many years ago. But I wouldn't recommend some of their boards to people in the IT industry who don't have much expertise in hardware, as I said before the Bios can be a bit complicated. Also the 70% reason I think is because Asus a couple of years ago was only available through Computer Shops and Wholesalers, Now you can get them at Beta Electrical, K-Mart, BigW, JB HiFi, Wow Sight & Sound, ect,
    Now it is not as Exclusive as it once was, my mates daughter is one of the head orders for Asus Australia and has said the thing. anyway I just like the build quality of Gigabyte boards and the componets that they use. but each to their own I say.

    Nothing wrong with the Asus or the P5Q (the Deluxe board is probably better in that it has more facilities). Gotta be a reason why nearly 70% of editors use Asus and most NLE manufacturers recommend them.

    Do yourself a favour and check out Gigabyte boards, the Bios is a little more complecated but in my opion a better board, I have used both for years,

    started a topic Asus motherboards compatibility

    Asus motherboards compatibility

    As I compare the compatible motherboards who are listed on the GV site, a lot of the Asus mobo's aren't in the market anymore (e.g. P5K deluxe/Wifi AP, P5K-V, ...). Some of the following boards are from similar series. Anyone using one of the following and had any problems or none?

    Asus P5K Pro
    Asus P5K Premium/Wifi AP
    Asus P5K WS

    And which new Asus mobo's (series who aren't mentioned at all) are yet used without problems? E.g. the P5Q series
Working...
