Which one do you guys think is better? Or do you know a different one that is better and that is under $155.

You will get a lot of suggestions for the ASRock Extreme 4. You could look and see if Gigabyte UD5H is cheap or UD4H.

I'd go with the Asus Z87-A, great mobo, won't touch MSI mobos due to poor QC

Thanks! One more thing I'm seeing lots of negative reviews about the Asus Mobo is that something to be scared about?

I haven't had any problems with the ones I've worked wit, as with any mobo will want to make sure you install the latest BIOS and drivers from the website, generally the ones on any mobo's CD are outdated by the time you get it

I know I watched a review on newegg on the 1150 ROG boards the ASUS guy said you should use the CD because it has some things you don't get from the downloads, but then of course after CD update everything as usual.

You may also get things you don't want, i.e. unwanted apps, do a selective install if going that way so you don't add unwanted junk, and then after you update from the mobo site to latest - run a registry cleaner (Wise has a free version) to clean up the old stuff
