Depends if you want to upgrade the cpu later.

I know that the asrock is a good overclocker but you present cpu doesn't allow that.

Next step is to look at the warranty, anything under 3 years means it most likely junk.

Now, after doing some research on mobo, msi is not a recommended one.
If you want to shop around a bit, try to get a gigabytes or Asus.

hello sir,
thank you for the inputs.. :) 
My apologies sir i forgot to add that im upgrading mobo w/o changing my RAM and processor... :( 
im so sorry for that :( 

i also look at gigabyte mobos but they are not compatible w/ my current Gskill Ripjaws X-8GB 4gbx2 DDR3 1333 CL9 8GBXL and Im sorry sir but im not an Asus mobo fan... :( 

And about my processor sir, if im going to upgrade it in the future, maybe i will stick to it a little longer and if i get lucky maybe ill upgrade it to Ivy Bridge... :D
