Which Mobo for new I7 920 build?

Guys, Im building a new system soon and Im looking at these Mobos. I dont know which one to get. I was leaning towards the ASRocks because of its good tech reviews and value, but lately Im seeing more negative reviews on NewEgg and in some forums. I have always built with MSI boards and have not had a single problem. Im looking to game and do general everyday stuff. I dont know what Im doing when it comes to overclocking so, I dont plan to do that either.

Any help is appreciated.

ASRocks X58 Extreme

MSI X58 Pro-E

Intel I7 920 Cpu with stock cooler
Antec Nine Hundred Case
Antec True Power 750 W PS
XFX Radeon 5850 Video Card
Lite ON DVD Burner

Western Digital Sata 500 GB HD

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    Well, I will go for the Gigabyte.
  2. I will
  3. One thing to add Get the I7 930. An extra $6 for 133mhz + the 920 is being phased out.
  4. I bought the 920 for $200. I think I got a pretty good deal. No reason in this case to spend another $100 for a couple more mhz.......

    Oo right :) that is a decent deal on newegg its $289 atm thats why i thought it was better to go for the 930 :)
  6. Unfortunately, Microcenter has the 930 now for $230. I already bought the 920. Even though I havent installed it, their policy states you cannot return processors unless they are defective........that sucks. For $30 more I would of bought it. I was a week too early buying the 920.
  7. I just talked to Microcenter. They said they would exchange the processor for me even though I opened it! Cant beat Microcenter!! $230 for a I7 930!! Woo Hoo!
  8. great... get the giga-byte board... wouldn't trust asrock... msi board u mentioned is very average...
