Hello everybody !
I am looking for a LGA 775 platform motherboard and after I view many offers, there remained only 2 motherboards :

MSI P43T-C51
(http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=pr...=&prod_no=1839)

and

ASUS P5QL SE
(http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_I...vhd&templete=2)

Both cards have similar specifications, the same chipset (Intel P43) and a very close price.
If you were to chose between these 2 motherboards, which one is most recommended ?
Any advice is wellcome.
Thank you in advance.

I would recommend the ASUS mobo, because I have had very good experiences with ASUS in the past and present. I'm currently using the P7P55D EVO by ASUS, and I have to say I'm very pleased with it. Updates are available at the ASUS website for virtually any utility or driver you need, for every mainstream OS out there.

I have to admit, though. I am biased. I have never used an MSI board, so I'm recommending based on my experiences.

Actually, i agree, stick with ASUS, MSI is a good brand, but as far as motherboards go (at least LGA 775) ASUS & Gigabyte are tops. I have an ASUS LGA 775 motherboard and i love it, not one issue at all. Also, the OC interface in the BIOS is pretty easy.
