    I know this is a very general question, but what is the reputation of jetway motherboards. Computer store nearby says they are a good board for the buck.

    Cheap.

    Not inexpensive. Just plain ol' cheap.

    For inexpensive try Asrock, DFI, Foxconn or (maybe) Chaintech.

    Oh, buy online and you can get a good board for the price of an OK board in a store.

    I would avoid Foxconn like the plague. Unless they have switched whatever vendor was supplying their capacitors.

    When buying motherboards I stick to the more well known names.

    MSI, ASUS, ABIT, INTEL, DFI etc.

    MSI makes inexpensive boards and I have always had good luck with them.

    I would skip the Jetway....

    I will second that. I've built 4 machines using MSI boards, 3 machines with ASUS boards, 1 machine with an intel board, 1 machine with a gigabyte board.

    All 4 machines w/ MSI boards are still alive and kickin after years of me running the hell out of them, great boards.

    Although ASUS has a good reputation, I've had nothing but problems with their boards, same with GIGABYTE.

    Intel makes some really nice and stable boards, although you can only get them with intel processors.

    Agreed...

    MSI is the board I generally prefer, but I've also used a lot of Asus boards with plenty of success. The machine I just replaced last year, ran an Asus A7N8X for 1.5yrs, and was running fine before I rebuilt my system. I put it in an old case, and gave it to a kid in the neighborhood who's PC had burned up. Far as I know, its still running fine.

    After those two, its Abit, after that, nothing. I won't use any board but the above 3.
