Has anybody had any personal experience with either of these boards?
I didn't have much luck with the MSI Live Update Utilities on my first MSI board, the 648F Neo-L. Not to mention, my USB 2.0 never correctly worked. I was thinknig the new MSI boards, mainly the PM8M-V would be a bit better than my previous board.
I really don't need it for that much. I do a little gaming here and there with CS, Call of Duty, and Vietcong, but other than the basics, that is really it.
The previous board I had was fine, except for the part when it died.
I could pick up the MSI board at a local Milwaukee PC for $60. Then for the ASUS, the only reputable place online to get it was newegg for $80 plus 5 or so for shipping.
Is the ASUS worth the $25 more?
