i think its come to a moment, where most if not all onboard sound chipsets, are now acceptable to most everyday users.

I prefer the VIA I like the interface that it has and It is pretty good as far as onboards go. Sound quality wise they are both about the same.

In other words the differences are negligible.

I'd personally buy the p7p55d, not because of the chipset but because Asus tend to be better quality then msi from what I've heard.

Neither one, I prefer Gigabyte boards for their stability. GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard has Realtek onboard audio and it works great.

myself using an asus board with VIA.

it has a nice optical spdif out which works flawlessly.

For digital (spdif) though, either is fine, since in digital mode the sound chip does not actually touch the sound.

really either sound chip is fine these days.

as for motherboard, I like to go with ASUS, they have always served me well, never broken, although that might be lucky. im hearing mixed reports.

Ive had over 5 ASUS boards, and not a single one has ever broken, whilst my first Gigabyte board broke within a year.... not buying gigabyte again

I say ASUS, but in all honesty, go to newegg and see the reliability of your board by reviews from other people.
