I haven't had any experience with msi mobo's though I hear they are really good for oc'ing. As for asus, I do have experience with the a7v8x-x and it seems to be a good mobo. I haven't oc'ed yet but it's in the near future.

I have the A7N8X-Deluxe v1.04 and the Barton 2500.
I can't get the external clock past 180MHz without it failing to run 3DMark2001se... also with the latest bartons (post week 39) the multipliers are locked. You should bare that in mind when choosing processor.
Your o/c will apparently depend on your ram, I have TwinMOS 3200. I have been told cosair and ocz are best to get tight timings and compatibility.
