Go to http://www.tomshardware.com and http://anandtech.com and read about the available mobo's for your particular needs/use. There are many sutble differences in all,with slight varitaions that may just fit your needs.
Such as the RAID controller, some only support RAID, some support RAID or IDE [ATA], some support RAID, ATA and ATAPI. The RAID, ATA, ATAPI can be very useful for some users, such as this writer.
The ethernet controller can be gigabit in some and only 10,100 in others.
Lots of other minor variations.
Of the ones that I have used lately I liked ABIT because their manual is written in understanable English. I like Gigabyte [usually more costly] but their manuals are not that great and their tech support
replies in a day, but virtually can't understand what they write, or they simply repeat the info tin the manual that is still not very clear.
