I reviewed their 815EP board for LostCircuits, and it's a great board for Intel chips. It's currently running a CuMine 500 at 150 MHz bus for 750 with superb stability (of course, it's been running NT/Win2K, which doesn't hurt). They may not have the weight of the Asus name, but they can make a good motherboard.

Gigabyte usually makes several versions of their boards for differing price points - they may include/exclude things like a 6th PCI slot, ATA100, or another DIMM slot.

If you aren't going to overclock, then you probably won't miss anything by using Gigabyte. I haven't seen much on the overclocking options of their AMD platform, though. I'd like to know how their KT133A board compares to Iwill's, which seems to be the standard for that chipset.
