What is the better board? Asrock/Msi

ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

or

MSI Z77A-G41 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Gonna run a 7950 and a 3570k on 520w

'm sure you'll all say the Z77, but I'm not sure if there's some problem with the board that normally plagues "deals" like this. Or would you recommend a different board? Thanks for your feedback.

  1. Neither one of those are good my suggestion:

  2. Personally I say stay away form ASrock. I have had nothing but problems with their boards. ASUS and Gigabyte.
  3. What's better in that board then the boards I specified? Just trying to learn a bit. (Like I know rhe z75 just doesn't have HDD SSD caching)

    There's a lot of differences. For one, there's a better slot layout, and the Asus motherboard will support crossfire and SLI, so you can run multiple cards when the time comes. The Asus board also has a lot more connectivity options, like HDMI and DisplayPort, if you roll that way. There's also 2 more USB 3.0 ports, which are always nice. The SATA port layout is also a little better, depending on your preference (the ports go to the side, instead of facing up). Perhaps most of all, you get that dependability in that Asus motherboard. MSI and AsRock do have some strong suits, but Asus and GIGABYTE are usually well known for their dependability.
