Cancel Mobo order and upgrade?

I just just permission from Newegg to return a unopened Mobo(they're so awesome). It is :
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131981

I did this at the possibility of getting this for 145 (ten bucks more, amazon sale no MIR)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130693

Is it worth it to return it and get the new mobo? I don't plan to mess with BIOS to need a button for it. Will there be a game performance hindering with the one I got. I was happy with the one I got, but the amazon email I got with the deal it made me uncertain.

  1. I'd keep the -A version. Edit: IMO Asus is a better board all around.
  2. I would also stick with the Asus board, good quality also looks awesome.

    Even without the dragon? :) I was looking at the extra features, maybe I am just being confused by the fancy sounding things. I like the slots in the asus board which is a reason why I picked it. Also it says it supports Turbo boost 2.0 (I don't know what that means, sounds good ). I guess the only difference i would notice is the audio. Might as well save 10 bucks.
  4. I'd stick with the Asus. Haven't had good experience with MSI.

    I run asus boards in both my pc's and they are great. Turbo boost 2 is an overclocking feature. The Asus board will give you all you need in terms of overclocking ability, good power distribution and usb 3/pcie 3 support.

    The ten dollar savings is just a bonus - Asus is the better brand/board.

    Yep, that's a good choice. All-Around ASUS builds better mobos than MSI.
