They look good, Overclock well. I've had customers who use Asus GPUs and love them. I'm also thinking of getting a GPU from Asus.

i heard a car injury firm on my radio say as their slogan "we are the best because we focus on one thing car accidents"

A reputable, proven company that makes an all around great product whether it be a component or a full fledged system. I've heard nothing but great things about ASUS and you can't seem to go wrong with anything they manufacture.

From everything I know, yes. They can have problems, but no more than any other mobo from any other manufacturer.

if its not one of the cheap ones, then yes they are good, but so are most motherboards. one of the fisrt things to go wrong are capacitors so look for boards with good capacitors if you want to keep the board for a very long time
