Default Is MSI a good mobo brand?

I've been looking for motherboards for awhile but I dunno what brand is good. I almost narrowed my sights on an MSI mobo. So are they a good brand?

I prefer Gigabyte, but I will go MSI when Gigabyte is not available.

Same here. I've had both over the years and i've always leaned towards the Gigabyte ones but never a problem with MSI.

I prefer ASRock because I've dealt with all the other companies and did not like the or customer service.

Also, should I be concerned about the chipset? Mainly the A78 VS A58. I'm running an A6 6400k.
