I've had good luck with Asus boards though...and on the odd occasion when there's a problem with them, Asus is pretty good with repairs/replacements.
I have worked with Gigabyte motherboards and can attest to their quality.
Granted I've only used the P35/P43 chipset motherboards, but I imagine the quality would remain the same across all platforms.
Gigabyte is a fine motherboard manufacturer and one of the few that I actually trust. Asus is another good one as you mentioned, but they have terrible RMA service as does Gigabyte.
MSI seems to have the best RMA service, but I've had the worst luck with them so wouldn't recommend them.

Gigabyte is considered to be one of the top tier motherboard manuafacturers (along with ASUStek, MSI, and ECS ).
That being said, there are differences between the different boards Gigabyte puts out. I would read some reviews before you buy. I like to read Newegg customer reviews to see what types of problems people report about a product before I buy.

I have nothing but agreement for the aforementioned MBs. I do find that Tiger Direct is a better source for them, and sometimes reviews. Even better is the magazine in the UK that regularly features articles on overclocking (I a bit over 4GHz is the current mark) and reviews them fairly extensively.
I could name a couple of others, but they are not in English.
