I am thinking of getting a new motherboard and I need some help I would like a powerful and reliable one. Could you recommend a board and the reason of your choice?
Thank you all

Asus A7N8X Deluxe

nForce 2 chipset currently better than Via
on-board sound excellent - only really bettered by top of the range cards - most users won't be able to tell difference.
6 x USB2 (2 headers onboard can be front or backplate mounted, + 4 already connected)
2 firewire
2 SATA Controllers (the future of HDD is SATA connections)
COP (Computer Overheating Protection, shuts down PC if it all goes pear-shaped)
2 10/100 Ethernet on-board for networking and Broadband.
3 fan headers able to control fan speed for CPU, Case and PSU fans, thereby cutting down noise for average user (not Xtreme gamer tho.)
Excellent Asus Forums for any problems you may experience.

I HATE the fact that the formatting on these forums is S**T.

Unless I press return twice, it prints as one long RANT.

If I do press it twice, it looks like this!

Hopefully, that'll look more readable.
