But very little of it is relevant to Linux. Most of their feedback seems 
to be from Windows gamers.

The Asus forums have good feedback on the Asus motherboards, which I 
have found to be of good quality and very reliable (the boards I mean).

Linux now supports most mainstream hardware well, the days of having to 
search for drivers are pretty much past. If it's been out more than a 
month or two it will generally "just work".
