Default Best motherboard choice?

Could anyone tell me which would be the best choice as far as a motherboard goes? I cant really decide.
Also, I would like it to be as future-friendly as possible. - MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - ASUS P8P67 EVO (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I really don't think either mobo is going to be more future proof than the other. I personally like Asus better but MSI makes good mobo's also so I think you'll be fine with either choice.

No such thing as "future proof" my friend, there will always be new technology around the corner. If you want you can look at GEN 3 motherboards which have pci-e 3.0 support for the new graphics card. Anything with socket 1155 will support the lower end IVY bridge processors. Other then that your at the mercy of the future. I went with an ASUS board myself, its all about what you use and trust.
