Top-a-the-Line motherboard recommendations
I know it may be a loaded question but what would be a recommendation for a good/best, top-of-the-line motherboard for a Desktop p/c.
Don't do gaming - not interested in lights and other do-dads.
Do regular Word, Excel, Financial Software, VPN to work computers, maybe image tweaking, browsing.
Looking for something that has good amount of connection option with on-board video & audio to start.
Upscale sata and USB.
Intel or amd doesn't matter.
Have sata ssd's and hhd's to attach.
Not overly concerned with cost - can make own value judgments.

Asrock, Gigabyte never left me alone until...
in mid 2018(June) both finally were affected by capacitor plague. Inferior Capacitors built in which will die or get ill before promised life-end. at around 5000hrs instead of 10000. I examined these 2004 and later MOBOs(have multiple copies) really to the ground. Only found out what was the reason a bit later. after 3 weeks i could reactivate both pcs. both were working outside cases. there is a looong Mono-thread by me. Defective PSU or something like that. to follow and understand it will need a lot of time and nerves.

I will not go back to desktop. maybe reactivate and upgrade an Asus Z87C(older i7) 16/256/2.
Hope a new capacitor plague will not come back. manufacturers have certainly learnt their lessons. NB : there is a Capacitor Plague-Forum.
There is a company or multiples? offering a laptop-system which is easily upgradable.
