    I highly recommend avoiding MSI, for a number of reasons.

    First, it's a b75 chipset, which is much worse than the (best option) z77 chipset of the Asus.

    Second, Asus is a much, much more reliable manufacturer of motherboards than MSI, who can have some... issues... with their boards.

    Alright thanks XD But could somebody provide me with more info about them both including differences?
  3. Do you mean differences between the chipsets?

    The wiki article is the way to go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155

    The biggest downside is that the MSI board only allows overlocking through the BLCK, which will give a poor overclock and is very dangerous. On top of that, the Asus is simply better quality and comes with a much better warranty.

    Sorry for late reply but, thanks :) i didn't mean the socket type for CPU, i just meant the features, plugs, etc... but I already chose a motherboard :)
  5. Ah, gotcha. Hopefully I was a help, and I hope you have fun trashing games on you new rig!
