LGA1155 mobo: GIGABYTE or MSI? Tags: Motherboards Gigabyte MSI Last response: April 1, 2011 2:29 AM in Motherboards Share mthomas99 April 1, 2011 1:25:53 AM Hi, I'm trying to decide between the following motherboards: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3-B3L http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... MSI P67A-G43 (B3): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... They are the same price on newegg, but I have had my socket 939 ASUS motherboard for 6 years and don't know where to turn when it comes down to these two companies for my next mobo. Which do you think will be the most reliable long term? I'm pairing it with a i5 2400 and kingston hyperx blu 2 x 4gb ram.

Ask ! Get the answer mthomas99 April 1, 2011 1:46:16 AM I was just looking for feedback on the kinds of experiences others have had with Gigabyte and MSI. I wasn't in the mood to pay a premium for ASUS again - the 939 A8N-SLI Prem was 170ish and I never overclocked my 3700+ san diego. BUT if your saying every other MFR is questionable in quality I think that may be the best route to go then. anort3 a c 158 V Motherboard April 1, 2011 1:48:34 AM No Gigabyte and Asus are roughly equal in quality. Some sockets Asus does better( 1156) some Gigabyte does better( 775). MSI also makes a great LGA 1155 board and so does ASRock. christop a b V Motherboard April 1, 2011 1:54:51 AM Gigabyte make great board too. I just prefer ASUS for my personal builds. jb6684 a b V Motherboard April 1, 2011 2:08:22 AM It's ASUS or Gigabyte for motherboards in my book too. There both very good and similar quality. If it doesn't break, can you really consider the extra few buck a premium? (BTW, my 939 system has run 24x7 since the day I built it on an ASUS MB...... (yes, now a day's it just serves up CD's in JukeBox fashion to the other computers on my home network...)) mthomas99 April 1, 2011 2:11:34 AM I have issues playing 1080p youtube videos on my 939 3700+ 2.2 ghz with a 8800gts 320 mb so new pc time. going with ASUS P67 LE mthomas99 April 1, 2011 2:14:44 AM ASUS P8P67 LE just ordered from amazon -- I liked the Gigabyte ud3's look, but I'll be superstitious and stick with the brand that's worked . anort3 a c 158 V Motherboard April 1, 2011 2:29:37 AM I'm on my 5th Gigabyte board in a row so I know what you mean.
