Asus Maximus VI Hero or MSI Z87M Gaming

Hi Guys!
I'm building a new rig and I can't decide over what motherboard I'd put in. I'm getting the MSI GTX 750TI OC as my GPU so I kind of want the MSI motherboard too...

Can someone give me some PRO/CONs for the Asus and MSI motherboards?

Thanks!

  1. Best answer
    Both companies offer good quality products which is beyond any doubt. But Asus products are more innovative than others. Asus quality of components is top notch and their design is quite appealing. Both of these mobos pack good performance potential. You can't go wrong with either of them.

    But remember Hero VI is ATX form factor whereas MSI Z87M is micro ATX card but it packs powerful gaming potential.

    Both of these boards are Z87 chipset. Are you planning to overclock? Why GTX 750 Ti?

    Spend wisely on mobo, save some bucks and get high end GPU as GPU matters for gaming not mobo.
  2. If this is for gaming get a cheaper board and stronger GPU. The Hero is one of the best Z87 boards in it price range.

    No overclock for me, had a bad experience once... as for the GTX 750 Ti, it's the only one I could find to fit my gaming and price needs from the retailers I can buy from. Anyway thanks for the tips, I'll keep them in mind when I start spending.
