    i cant decide which motherboard to get for my AM3 build which will be using a 955 and corsair 1600mhz ram I'm thinking either the MSI 790FX-GD70 or the ASUS M4A79T Deluxe any thoughts on which one you would buy the msi one is cheaper by almost 50$ where i buy too. i have never owned MSI so i don't know what there like only owned ASUS which one you think i should get?

    Both are good boards and both oc like hell. You should go for the msi simply for the fact that is cheaper and has more features.

    Try the GA-MA790XT-UD4P instead. Cheaper and it'll OC equally well.

    Never had a single bad Asus experience personally and I've been using their boards exclusively for years.

    I'm using the M4A79T Deluxe in my 955 system and I love it. Can't go wrong in my opinion.

    now I'm not sure which one i was leaning towards the MSI as it has more features and has had better reviews then the gigabyte and asus.
