MSI P55A-G55 vs ASUS P7P55E-PRO

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am building a pc and i want to buy a motherboard. I found these two motherboards to be pretty similar. The only defference is that the msi one is around $100 bucks adn the asus is $180. They seem exactly the same, so I need your help to tell me which one is better and why.

-I am also planing on getting 2x gtx460 and i7 875k

Thanks

I would use the P7P55D-Pro or P7P55D-E Pro. I've had no issues with mine running Crossfire.
