im making a build with the i5-3450 CPU, and radeon hd 7850 GPU. it is a micro ATX build, and i am stuck deciding between two different motherboards. i dont plan to OC the CPU, but i might try doing it to the memory or GPU.
as far as i can see, the MSI has 4 DDR3 slots(1600MHz or up to 2400MHz OC) , and the ASRock only has 2 slots (1600MHz only).
so it appears that the MSI is a little bit better, as it has the ability for me to upgrade and/or expand the RAM in the future.
my question is: are there any quality issues with these brands that would make me chose one over the other? or are they both bad, and should i take the equivalent asus ($89, 2x DDR3) or gigabyte ($99, 4x DDR3) boards instead? opinions?
