its almost 30 dollars cheaper, clocks just under the lightning (which you can oc past it easily with the direct CU cooler) and asus offers a 3 year warranty over the 2 year "limited" warranty of the msi.

but you can choose either, i was trying to keep you under budget while still giving you better performance for your money
