    As far as I know, there is no such thing as a "good" assembler. The only thing that an assembler does is translate one instruction to one instruction, so there's not really any room for amazing optimizations to be applied by any particular assembler. Assembly is the language in which programmers themselves are tested, not the software they use.

    ...

    Stop looking at me like that!

    Alright, you twisted me arm, I'll say MASM

    As for tutorials, there should be plenty of web ones around, I'll leave RoD to post Google links. I've just gotten a book by Kip Irvine about it, seems a good read.

    Both are good. Another good one is NASM, this is a free assembler.

    What's the difference between TASM, MASM, and NASM?

    TASM is from Borland, MASM is from Microsoft and NASM is the Netwide Assembler, thought it is an open-source project and then there is also FASM and a lot more assemblers.

    Assembly language itself doesn't differ very much, but just as with compilers, also the assemblers have their manufacturer specific things. So when you write assembly for one assembler, there is a chance that you have to adapt the code when you are going to use a different assembler.

    TASM - Borland Turbo Assembler - the only one out of the 3 that is not freely available
    MASM - Microsoft Assembler/Macro Assembler - downloadable free from the web - (do a search on Hutch or Iczelion) - loads of support from web
    NASM - Netwide Assembler - free - loads of support from web
