People are giving me mixed impressions on which board to buy. The crosshair is at the extreme end of my budget ( over budget really )

from a practical stand point.
I HATE MSI from my experiences in the late 90's.
note: if it matters I'm not a heavy OC, infact this would be my first time oc'n ever....
I typically run 12-20 chrome tabs, PS 5, skype, TS3, thunderbird, wamp, netbeans and maybe one or two other programs simultaneously all day.
I do play a couple of games, one of which is swtor
thanks in advance.
I asked in vishera group but didn't get very far
someone please help this dinosaur before I loose what little hair I have left.
