Asus P5QPL-AM vs MSI G41M4-F

I'm a newbie to hardware things and would like to buy a new PC. I'm currently stuck on which motherboard should I choose.

My only options are:
1.) Asus P5QPL-AM ( http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=08c0CULpvP1ZM9kT&templete=2 )
2.) MSI G41M4-F ( http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=&cat3_no=&prod_no=1748 )

Which of the two should I buy?

  1. Best answer
    As long as you don't plan on anything more than mild overclocking, both should be fine basic motherboards (Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express x16 1.1). Too bad you can't get something a bit better and probably less expensive like the Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L.
  2. Thanks for the response.

    I'm not in the US so I have to choose the best available, unfortunately only those two when I look their specs.

    I won't OC too.
  3. If they cost the same , I would go with the MSI.
  4. May I know why you would choose MSI?

    The MSI G41M4-F is the cheaper one.
  5. Because it has better Ethernet and sound controllers. Other than that I see no differences between the Asus and the MSI. They both are low-end motherboards that do the job.
