I will be picking up a motherboard this weekend. I will use it for photo editing, home theater use and gaming.

I have already

-16gb DDR3 1600 MHz ram
-XFX HD 7850
-700 watt PSU
-AMD FX-8350(got it cheap)
-a home theater case with cooling concerns

will be adding(eventually)
-high end sound card
-blu ray player
-SSD drive

please see the pole for the 3 in the running.

also any one saying go Intel will be promptly ignored

never owned a biostar before.. but with much experience with both gigabyte and msi.. (and both of their warranty procedures) I would have to say MSI hands down.
