  1. Best answer
    If in the budget I'd go $20 more on the mobo and get the Asus Pro or the Hero, won't touch MSI for builds, poor QC and support. Also on the DRAM a 12 GB set will give you 8GB in dual channel and the other 4 in single channel which is extra stress on the MC (memory controller, better off with 8GB or 16GB in a 2x4GB or 2x8GB config or even a 4x4GB 16GB setup
