  1. I would choose the msi for it's dvi port and one reviewer got his 4100 to work without a bios flash. Both boards are limited to 95w cpus, which limits it to lesser phenom II's and bulldozers.

    I've seen this same comparison, and as I recall my advice was to choose the one with the most useful I/O peripherals to your purpose. I double-checked and they bot support your ADX455WFK32GM CPU. 'I' prefer the ASUS BIOS.

    RAM - IMO I also would look at both more RAM 2x4GB and a 64-bit OS. RAM 2x4GB Kits - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007611%20600006069&IsNodeId=1&page=3&bop=And&CompareItemList=147%7C20-231-422%5E20-231-422-TS%2C20-231-426%5E20-231-426-TS
