I love MSI products. Granted, I havent messed with them since I replaced my MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum nForce 250GBS mobo (crazy ocer and awesome stuff there). Seems like they made a nice niche in graphics cards too.

One of my friends has that mobo. It was absolutely awful to start with, but I think a BIOS update has fixed most of the problems, but it's still put me off buying MSI a little bit considering how well my ASUS works.
