  1. Just take the one you like the most. They are basically the same
  2. I would avoid the MSI board in favor of the Gigabyte board.

    The MSI boards have bad voltage regulators which is mitigated somewhat by having a stock dispersal fan which you aren't going to be using.

    The Zalman cooler won't hit the voltage regulators so you want a board with better regulators on it than the ones MSI uses.
  3. I'm running the same mobo/cpu set up, and it seems fine. Stable and cool at stock. The mobo shipped with F5 BIOS, but it was straightforward to flash it to F9. I have had problems overclocking my set up so far (for another post).

    If you haven't bought it and you're close to a MicroCenter, they were running a pretty good deal on the combo (essentially, the mobo was US$50).
