Choice depends on how much you want to spend and how far on the "leading edge" of technology you want to be ...
My personal favorite used to be ASUS. I used them for YEARS.
Then, I had a board short out for no apparent reason.
Switched over to using Gigabyte -- and have been really impressed by their work.
Suggest you go read some reviews of recent boards to see which ones best fit your needs. A really good review site is:

The short circuit may have nothing to do with Asus but rather Rohs requirement for lead free circuitboards. see http://www.tinwhisker.us/
