  1. Both are very good pick the one you favor mate i would choose the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H because i have not had good luck with msi mobos but doesn't mean that you will so just pick the one you like best
  2. the msi probably wont ever have a DOA since they individually test them. both are good.my other selection would be the asus z77-v pro.
  3. The UD5H is a better bang for your buck. The UDH5 has every bell and whistle for a really good price. It overclocks well, runs cool, and does all this for under $200. It's a very sexy board with the flat black and white. The heat sinks look really good, they are anodized blue with aluminum trim. Looks a lot better in person than from the photos.

    That being said I've had 2 that needed to be replaced already for a dead BIOS. I plan on replacing it with a GD65.

    I really like the MPower, but having only 6 SATA ports just won't work for me. I know they were trying to keep costs down, but every other board in this class has 8 SATA ports. I would have preferred they skipped the cheap wifi and gave us more SATA ports. You can pick up a really good wifi card for less than what they charge to build it into the board.
  4. the only thing that i dont really like about the ud5h is the inlcuded software. asus does a better job at that. same with msi
  5. Thank you all for your quick response!

    I always prefer Gigabyte but this time im in dilemma.The price between the 2 motherboards in my country is about the same (Greece).

    Things that i liked in Mpower is the look and that they test them with prime95. The only issue that i heard in newegg comments is Mvp not working properly on.

    Pff difficult decision to make,but thank you all for your help. :)
  6. hardly anyone uses MVP. i just use it so that i can use quick sync to encode my movies
  7. Both the MPower and the UD5H have great reviews. If you're more of a gamer, I say you go for the MPower, but if you're a normal gamer, not much of an enthusiast, you'll be more than happy with the UD5H. You could also consider getting The ASUS P8Z77 V-PRO which imo, is better than both of them.
  8. I think i will proceed with the Gigabyte board. :D

    Thank you for your help!
