Depends on WHY you need a new motherboard.

If it is meant to be an "upgrade" for "bigger and better things", I have no suggestions for you.

If it is because the old is , well old and not working correctly, I would suggest that you contact your computer manufacturer and try to purchase a model that is designed for your computer. That way, there will be no compatibility or other conflicts issues.

Bear in mind that a new motherboard is considered as a new computer. You will have to re-install your OS and everything. A motherboard that is designed for your computer by the same computer manufacturer will save you a lot of heart burns.

Just my 2 cents. Stay away from ECS. Asus and MSI are good. . Asrock boards have come a long way and may save you a few sheckles. Maybe look into Gigabyte and EVGA.

Asus is best among the three brands that you have mentioned. The important question is that why you want to upgrade your motherboard.
Change your motherboard according to your requirements that what kind of programs and games do you play.

If you are simply upgrading, what do you hope to gain from a new motherboard? Unless it has a feature or something specific that your current one does not, you won't see a performance increase from just buying a newer chipset or higher-end motherboard. For gaming performance, you'd be better off upgrading the GPU instead.

As far as brands go... ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI are genuinely considered to be the top three in the market.

my graphic card is Ge force gtx 650 1gb
If all you want is better game performance, then I'd definitely suggest a GPU upgrade instead of a new motherboard!

Whichever ya want! It especially depends on which games you have or want, since AMD and NVIDIA offer completely different game bundles at the moment... specially marked AMD cards have BF4 for instance.
