Thanks for the links. by the way, how's the after sales support for jetway and biostar? any idea?

Biostar boards are usually a hit/miss. Check out reviews on the specific models before you purchase one of their units.

I've always stuck to Asus & Gigabyte, and personally, I think they're the best.

So I have decided to go for the intel mobo. I don't mean to overclock and the intel's price is lower. The biostar and jetway boards don't have good reviews so they are not an option. Just need to confirm for one last time if I am making the right choice or not ? Thanks.

Couple of Biostar boards are cheap as well as of standard quality. Also their service is provided by Abacus Peripherals and they are good at providing service.

Thanks for your help guys but I got a mobo from a friend so I am not buying any at the moment. I am also planning to buy a whole new PC in the next 6 months.

Ok so I have to return that mobo I got from my friend so I am on the lookout for another board again. From the links posted by dibya_kol, the brands I trust are Intel and Asus ( I have no experience with biostar and jetway) but Asus's after sales service is handled by Rashi peripherals, which is pathetic and I've hada bad experience with them in the past.
So, please suggest if there is any board from MSI or gigabyte within the price range of Rs. 4000. Thanks.

For your budget, Gigabyte has a good option - H55m-S2.
Features:
  • LGA 1156 Socket
  • Support upto 8GB DDR3 RAM
  • 6 SATA connectors
  • 1 PCIe
  • 8 USB Ports

I have this mobo and is doing good.
I didnt find this product of Flipkart, so posting other link.
Its should be available for 4-4.5k max.

Hope this helps..

Ok So, I am going to buy a mobo in a week or two and I am confused between either the Intel DH 55 PJ and the Gigabyte GA H55M S2 . Which one would be a better purchase ? I'd also like to know about the after sales service of Intel and Gigabyte. Which one's better? Also, can anyone tell where the service centers for intel are in mumbai ? Thanks.
