MSI has poor customer service , get the quality ASUS board.
I must disagree strongly with the above statement. I have had personal experience with both MSI Customer Service and Tech Support. Do you have any experience to base your opinion on, SR-71? If so, is it recent or years ago?
I would rate MSI's service as excellent!
From what I've read, it appears that some of MSI's AMD based mobos are poorly designed (970?) but this is simply not true for the Intel mobos. I have had very good results with the mobo in my sig, and I would most definitely buy MSI again.
