  1. From a little looking around, the MSI was supposed to be released in January, but I don't see where you can buy one yet. I didn't find anywhere that said it had definitely been released anyway. The ASUS was scheduled to be released in March by the sounds of it, but I don't think it has been. In my opinion the ASUS would be a better board, because I have heard better things about ASUS boards. I suppose it depends on exactly what you are looking for. ASUS sells more boards and has a better reputation, but that doesn't mean it will be better. We'll have to wait until they come out, I guess.
  2. Neither one of the boards are out yet, but I know the R3E will be out by the end of this month http://www.shopblt.com/cgi-bin/shop/shop.cgi?action=enter&thispage=01100300U033_BCR5623P.shtml&order_id=!ORDERID!

    Personally I'm looking for which one will overclock not only the easiest, but also the best. Like which one of these boards has the best power phase and what-not.

    Here is a review I found on the Rampage III. You might be interested especially in page 6, which is on overclocking. http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/asus_rampage_iii_extreme_review_world_first/1

    I wasn't able to find as much detail on the XPower, but here are two articles: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2010/03/24/first-look-msi-xpower-x58-and-890fx-gd70/1 and http://www.guruht.com/2010/03/msi-xpower-x58-motherboard.html
