    the msi has a fan on the northbridge, but other then that they are virtually equal, i would go with the asus if the cost were simular.
    She showed me her software so i pulled out my python.

    I would go with the MSI board. ASUS tech support sucks. Also, their waranties don't cover much. I haven't had a problem with my MSI boards.

    In tests on www.tomshardware.com, the msi was faster than the asus. I have the msi board, my friend has the asus, both work fine. I guess if the price was similar I'd go with the msi, since its probably a bit faster, v. easy to oc, and may have better warranty/tech support.
