Hello there.

I've recently been looking around on what motherboard I should select for my i5 build.

These 1156 motherboards are I've got in mind that are in my price range.

ASUS P7P55D LE - $229.70 AUD

MSI P55-GD65 - $248.90 AUD
http://www.pcmarket.com.au/17742_MSI_P55-GD65_Intel_P55...

ASUS P7P55D - $265.60 AUD
http://www.pcmarket.com.au/17942_ASUS_P7P55D_Intel_P55_...


The price doesn't really play a large role between these products.
All I want to know:
*What is going to perform the best.
*What is going to be the most reliable.

Thanks.

Both the ASUS boards dont support SLI but the MSI does...
And if you are overclocking, then the MSI P55-GD65 and ASUS P7P55D would be better choices...
Another mobo that you consider -
GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD4P

Here the mobos are pretty cheap...

Alright, thanks again for helping me :) 
Nearly got this build thought out.

I'm favouring the MSI Board since it has better features.

So you think the MSI board would be alright?
I not going to put a good video card in it, as you explained to me before. (Because the new ones are comming out later)

I know its not on your list but have you considered the GA-P55-UD3P from gigabyte? Great OC'ers and I've never had a problem with either my x58 or 790x. Plus they look great ;)  I guess you need to think about whether you want Xfire or SLI too.

Plus its a little cheaper Price range: $192.01 to $239.74 AUD at 41 stores. You could spend the extra on some killer Ram.

Okay Thanks.
Seems like a good board.

But the MSI one is good?
Just wanting to know what one would be the best.
