  1. MSI is hit or miss for quality; asus has fewer defective boards, but each model may have different quality ratings. I use the newegg reviews for specific models, but don't be scarred off by too many negatives. Operator error in installing software or updates can cause issues, as well as bad bios programs. Some need a bios flash to work right.
  2. MSI like GD65 or GD80 have better audio realtek 898 , asus p8z77 family (except deluxe) has crappy alc892
