I'd go with the Gigabyte or the Abit. The 3 MSI products I've seen have all failed, mainly from sloppy manufacturing. (Loose parts, mis-aligned heatsinks, clips shearing off the CPU socket.)

I've never owned an ABIT but hear only good things about them.

I do own a gigabyte and it is built well, totally stable. Not as overclocking friendly as an ABIT.

I looked at my favorite suppliers and pricegrabber and got no hits on the gigabyte boards with a V at the end of thepart number. When I left the V off I got hits. But prices were over $100. Especially the GA-7nnxp, it was $163.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
