I would recommend the Gigabyte board because some of the MSI boards with the 8xx chipsets had VRM problems. If you decide to go with AM3+ or Sandy Bridge, these boards are fine though.

Ok guys, i'm going to stick with Gigabyte.
Can anyone tell me will Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition succed to overclock to 4.0 GHz or higher ?
edit: Snowmen, these boards are not AM3+
Thanks

It should, assuming it isn't an old revision. Even then I'd say there would be a good chance.

Edit: He means MSI's AM3+ and SB boards have good enough VRMs.
