Hy im looking for a new motherboard and i cannot decide i mean i can but i'm poor i have a limted budget and i found some interesting stuff quite cheap. Most people and forums say that ASUS Gigabyte and most of my friends have asus or gigabyte and i know they are as good as they are rated i always loved MSI. i have a few motherboard models from which i cannot choose because i don't see big difference between them.

I lean towrds MSI because it's my favourite and ASrock being the cheapest i dont want to pay more for the name only i want to pay for performance and reliability So pls what do you think which is the best ?

All the brands you listed are good. In case you didn't know, ASRock is a subsidiary of ASUS. The question is, why are you choosing the boards you're choosing? There are much better chipsets available - you should be looking at boards based on the AMD 800 series.

Asrock boards only have a 1 year warranty. Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Biostar have three years.

Are you looking for ATX or mATX or doesn't it matter?

Do you want onboard graphics included?

You can filter all those items at by using the power search option.

890G chipset would be the newest and would have onboard graphics. ATI 4290 is the best onboard, IMO. 4250 is OK too.

ASrock being subsidiary of asus is a great reference. I choose those motherboard models because they are cheaper. I saw the motherboards on newegg and they are nice and cheap BUT i live in east europe and the prices are higher with 50-60% or more. But after a bit of research and a bit of sacrifice on my budget i found this the perfect balance i think between money(cheapness) and performance. Is it better than all above i guess
