Well I for one have never heard of them (which in my book is not a good
sign.  it doesn't mean they are bad, just that they are an unknown and
support may hence not be that good.)

I am one of those people that only buy Asus boards.  For a P4, the
P4P800-DLX is a very nice board.  It is an i865 based board, which seems
to be the most popular for P4s at the moment (i875 seems overpriced).
