I don't know about those rebates, I guess they are irrelevant to me because I'm not from the US.
Anyway, the GIGABYTE one is out of my budget, way too pricey.
The MSI one, it seems to have everything I need and even more, and is what I expected to pay for a mobo.
BTW, what's UEFI bios?
Alas, that MSI board isn't very overclock-able according to a bit-tech review.
i dont know abou it being not very overclockable because i havent tried overclocking mine
a uefi bios is just like a traditional bios that looks better and more convenient
