I think the Asus A7N8X or the Gigabyte 7NNXP are much better boards

I would be going to for the Gigabyte myself.
Asus has fallen in quality in the last few years.

LoL correct you are Silver! ::waddle waddle::
I'm using an MSI KT6V only because when I went to the computer store to get the K7N2 Delta they said they didn't have it and so I went a step down. I've never had experience with that particular board, but I can say that MSI makes good motherboards. I have an Abit board in here right now (that I'm trying to sell off SOMEONE BUY IT! ) and I've got my second machine built with my MSI board. That MSI board of mine has more options as far as overclocking than this particular ABit board. But beyond all that, I believe you'll find that MSI Board will suit your needs perfectly with stuff you said you wanted to put in there.

You are absolutely correct, I've been preaching it ever since I got to these forums and ag3 will agree too. ASUS Just aren't wait they used to be.

Conclusion: I've never used Gigabyte boards before, but I have used MSI and have had no complaints. It's not a completely dumbed down BIOS, but it doesn't have every single option you could possibly want either. It's about the middle road which will provide you with a good solid system if that's what you need and aren't looking for a lot of OC'ing and stuff like that within the BIOS. Since you're looking to put in that 3200+ chip you won't need to OC anyway cause you probably won't have room to. Your RAM is already low latency so you shouldn't have to worry about that.

Bah too much ranting. Anywho, my opinion is you won't be disappointed with that motherboard.
