  1. I would go with the ASUS over the MSI, as from my experience ASUS is a much more reliable brand & I would trust them much more than MSI. IMO, the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro is the best overall LGA 1156 motherboard.
  2. I put Asus, Gigabyte and MSI all as top tier motherboard makers. I would save the money.
  3. k well why is the asus one so much more expensive? i dont seem to notice any difference between the 2 boards...if someone could point out the reason why the asus board is so much more expensive that would help my decision alot...also i dont plan on doing much overclocking so dont take that into account ..thanks
  4. Here are s few customer reviews for the MSI, it doesn't look like it's bad:

  5. The asus has both SLI and crossfire support, MSI only crossfire. More connection possibility's with the asus as well http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627%20600007888%20600008069&IsNodeId=1&page=3&bop=And&CompareItemList=280|13-130-292^13-130-292-TS%2C13-131-621^13-131-621-TS
  6. Well if u look in the MSI website it says that the MSI board supports both SLI and Crossfire.

    Y for Yes i believe ?
