^ I've actually heard terrible things of MSI motherboards

OP are you going with single or dual GPU configuration? do you plan to overclock at all? what is your budget for a motherboard?

Well I would need these questions answered:

Do you have a budget for your motherboard, if so what would it be?

Do you plan to overclock your processor at all?

How many GPU's do you plan to use?

This.
Just in case you eventually decide to add a second graphics card on the future. It's a splendid board.
